I am a research associate and school tutor at the University of Sussex interested in gender studies, crime fiction, the Gothic, audience research and popular culture. I recently completed my PhD entitled ‘Domestic Noir: Reading Contemporary Women’s Genre Fiction’ looking at the crime subgenre of domestic noir, its readership, literary history and popularity. I currently teach undergrad and postgraduate modules in media, film and English literature at the University of Sussex. As part of the Brilliant Club, I also teach a course on the structures of storytelling in popular narratives in local schools around Kent and Sussex, which I designed in 2019 based on my research.
