I studied for my BA at the University of York and for my MA at the University of Leeds. My PhD on 'Mina Loy’s Modernist Aesthetic’ was awarded at the University of Leeds. My teaching career has taken me from Leeds to Falmouth University in Cornwall before arriving at Oxford Brookes University in 2002. I teach primarily on modernism, women's writing, technology, American literature and culture, and on twentieth-century literature. From 2014-2020 I was on the Executive Committee of the British Association for Modernist Studies.
