I am an Associate Tutor in the department of English, specialising in post-War metafiction and especially the works of Thomas Pynchon. In addition to a background in experimental theatre and literature, I am also interested in meta-issues surrounding scholarly publishing, open access and the sociology of the university.
As a complement to my research, I am the founding editor of the peer-reviewed, Gold Open Access e-journal, Orbit: Writing Around Pynchon and was chief editor of the postgraduate journal, Excursions until 2011.
I have taught and lectured on a range of courses from first-year synoptic introductions through to third-year seminars up to faculty skills workshops.

I am currently working on two book projects. The first, dervied from my doctoral thesis, investigates the ethics of Thomas Pynchon through the philosophical approaches of Wittgenstein, Foucault and Adorno. The second re-evaluates contemporary metafictive practice on a worldwide basis.
Other areas in which I am interested include contemporary fiction (Roberto Bolaño, Don DeLillo, Jonathan Franzen, David Grossman, Tom McCarthy, Toni Morrison, W.G. Sebald, David Foster Wallace), Modernism (Samuel Beckett, Robert Musil), innovative and productive engagements with philosophy and Theory, the theatre of Joe Orton, the films of Elia Suleiman, alternative theatre practice and the emergent digital humanities field.
