Thanks for stopping by my site!

I’m an independent scholar and theatre-maker currently temping in Bristol and doing hourly-paid teaching in Exeter.

I completed my PhD in Drama at the University of Exeter (UK) in June 2016. Since then, I have been focused on two major projects: my monograph on Shakespeare and Twitter, and my long-term practice-as-research project, Measure (Still) for Measure. 

I was recently featured on the Remixing the Humanities podcast, talking with Geoff Way about precarity and alt-ac jobs. 🔊 Listen now! 🔊





My main interests include:

⇒Performances thereof (both historical and contemporary)

⇒Shakespeare/early modern drama and digital culture

⇒Gender/identity and performance

⇒Adaptations of classical drama


For writing that isn’t quite academic, check out my blog.

I’m always happy to talk about future projects and potential collaborations.
