I studied at Leeds University (BA English Language and Literature, 1995; MA English Literature, 1997) and Middlesex University (PhD Film Studies, 2009). While completing my PhD, I taught at Middlesex University, University of Sussex, Goldsmiths, University of London and King's College London. I was Senior Lecturer in Film Studies at the University of the West of England (2009-2011) and then joined the University of Sussex as Lecturer in Film Studies in January 2011. I became Reader in Film Studies in 2016, and then Head of the Fim Studies unit in January 2018.  


I am a member of UCU (University and College Union), Reader in Film Studies, and currently Head of Film Studies.
