Research Areas

My research focuses on: cultural and literary histories of seas and coasts; the Gothic from the eighteenth century to the present day; Cornwall in literature and culture; queer ecologies; nineteenth-century literature and culture; and the works of Shirley Jackson, Wilkie Collins, and Ann Radcliffe.


I am interested in the dark, the anxious, the fractured, the transgressive, and where discomfort is found in the seemingly idyllic. Please find more detailed information below.


I am open to invitations to write and collaborate and welcome inquiries from prospective PhD students. Please email me at
