I am a Senior Lecturer in Critical and Historical Studies. My research focuses on the moving image and visual culture, especially the history and contemporary practice of embodied filmmaking and material culture; European women artists and filmmakers and the politics of the body.
Recent and on-going collaborations/Impact initiatives include work with The Wallace Collection, Birds Eye View, Freud Museum, the Serpentine Gallery and the British Film Institute.
I am currently writing two books; one on the British Art Cinema of Joanna Hogg for the 'Visionaries' Female Filmmakers EUP series and another on the literature of Deborah Levy and her philosophical writings which I align with cinematic thought. I am also developing a research network on Venice and Film which will lead to a conference and edited volume of essays.
I am on the editorial board of 'MAI: An International Journal of Feminism and Visual Culture'
