Modules taught


I hold degrees from Royal Holloway University of London and Goldsmiths College. Completed in 2019, my PhD focussed on the early works of Winifred Bryher, more specifically her autobiographical prose and her involvement with the POOL Group and their endeavours at filmmaking, and the journal Close Up. 

I have published work on Dorothy Richardson's film criticism for Close Up and another publication on the POOL Group's film Borderline is upcoming. I am currently working on my first monograph.
