About

I am a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick. Prior to starting at Warwick, I completed a BA, MA, and PhD in English at the University of Southampton, and taught at Southampton and the universities of East Anglia and Winchester.

Research interests

My research examines post-1960 science fictions, utopias, and dystopias in their social, economic, and political contexts. My Leverhulme ECF project, ‘Pipework: Energy, Environment, and Dystopia in Post-1960 American and British Culture’, explores the representation of energy infrastructures in science-fiction literature, cinema, and television. Based on my doctoral research, my previous project read Hollywood’s science-fiction films released between 1979 and 2017 (between Ridley Scott’s Alien and Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049) as so many responses to the ‘new enclosures’ – new privatisations and dispossessions – sweeping across the United States in that period.
