Thank you for visiting my homepage. 

I am an early career academic in the UK and a specialist in literary studies. I currently work as an Impact and Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Cultures, Languages, and Area Studies at the University of Nottingham, and I teach writing at Coventry University. 

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Aacademy, supporting excellence in teaching and learning.

My first book was on the modernist writer Hilda Doolittle (H.D.) and I am now working on a project on the food writer Elizabeth David. I am interested in the ways in which food cultures and writing about food, particularly gastronomical life writing, generate a sense of belonging, both 'at home' and also at the national level, particularly in Britain, but also, in David's case, in the Mediterranean.

I am also interested in how food informs our broader sense of cultural inheritance, and how food writing helps conserve traditions and customs for future generations. 

I am connected with the University of Nottingham's Future Food Beacon.
