I am studying for a doctorate in the Department of English, American Studies and Creative Writing (EAC). My project, tentatively titled 'Geographies of Failure,' asks how aesthetic imaginings of extreme geographies in the history of film can draw into question undertsandings of the Anthropocene as a synchronous planetary event.
Alongside my research I teach world cinemas and film history in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. I previously taught interdiscplinary approaches to climate crisis in the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine.
