About

My current research examines the concept of ecomasculinity in contemporary American fiction that invokes or reimagines the Old West and/or Western tropes. My broader research interests include ecocriticism/ecosophy, gender/masculinity studies, comics studies, and transatlantic nature writing/environmental literature (1800-present).

I am the recipient of the 2017 British Association for Contemporary Literary Studies (BACLS) Postgraduate Essay Prize, the 2018 British Association for American Studies (BAAS) Postgraduate Essay Prize, and the 2019 Irish Studies Association of Australia and New Zealand (ISAANZ) Postgraduate Essay Prize. My research is funded by a John Barnard Scholarship.

Alongside my research, I work as a freelance arts and culture writer and as the editor of AC Review of Books.
