I joined Keele in 2012 as an undergraduate in English and American Literatures and stayed on to complete a Masters in 2016. Following from my MA dissertation on Ely Shipley’s Boy with Flowers, my doctoral research explores how contemporary transgender poets engage with and (re)present concepts of time, space, place, the body, and gender more broadly.

I am currently supervised by Professor Ian Bell and Dr Ceri Morgan.

Conference Papers

Seminar Organisation

I co-run the Humanities’ Work in Progress seminar series (WiP). These peer-led seminars simulate a conference environment and thus provide postgraduate students in the Humanities with the opportunity to present and receive supportive feedback on current research.



I work within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and facilitate seminars in the following module:

ENG-10026: Reading Literature (September 2017-January 2018)
