I am a contemporary literature specialist, with a background in gender and women’s studies. My teaching and module tutor responsibilities include crime fiction, postcolonial writing, and contemporary British and American literature. I am also an active researcher and have published widely, and I regularly present papers at conferences in Britain and abroad. My research informs my module design and teaching, and I am keen to introduce students to the most recent literary texts and discuss current issues in my teaching.
