Biography

I completed my PhD at Queen Mary, University of London in 2017. I also completed my BA in Media Arts at Royal Holloway, followed by my PGCE in post-compulsory education at the Institute of Education and MA in Film Studies (by independent research) at De Montfort University. 

I mostly work at the intersections of film-philosophy and memory studies, and my research interests include:

  • the relationship between film and digital media, and contested memories and conflict
  • apocalyptical thought in philosophy, theology and cinema
  • animation 
  • the philosophy of Georges Didi-Huberman, Giorgio Agamben, and Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari
  • horror

I am currently working on:

  • a edited collected called Memorial Museums in the Digital Age
  • a co-authored book about Pixar and posthuman memory
  • a philosophical monograph about cinema's apocalyptic essence
  • a travelling cinema for older people in the London borough of Lewisham 

Before working in education and academia, I produced short films and music videos. I also develop screenwriting projects. I am actively engaged with Holocaust education and created the online academic network: 'the Holocaust, contemporary genocide, popular culture and the digital'. In my spare time I am a volunteer programmer at Deptford Cinema - a co-operative community cinema project bringing global films to local people.
