My research focuses on Shakespeare: performed, edited, filmed, adapted, translated, recycled; on Elizabethan and Jacobean drama; on performance hermeneutics and audience studies; on European and Foreign Shakespeare; on early modern e-resources; on performance documenting and archiving. I have published on Shakespeare contrmporary productions, on translations of Hamlet, on Bond's and Wesker's recyclings of Shakespeare, and on audience studies.

Currently I am completing a monograph on Romania's Hamlet and editing Doing Kyd - a collection of critical articles. I am preparing the introductory study to the new translation of Hamlet in Romanian (forthcoming in 2011).

I am organising Hamlet: Stage Productions and Translations, a two-day seminar for the International Shakespeare Festival - The Hamlet Constelation, Craiova - Romania, April 2010. The seminar will be chaired by Prof Michael Dobson and Prof Lawrence Guntner.
