I have research interests in: screen adaptation (beyond fidelity criticism), silence in the cinema (i.e. the use of silence to convey meaning), women on screen and women's fiction. I also teach on science fiction, contemporary Hollywood cinema.
I am an experienced public speaker and have recently appeared at the University of London's Living Frankenstein event, and The British Academy Summer Showcase. I have also appeared with Bright Club in Edinburgh and Dundee.
I am currently researching my monograph Quiet Pictures: British and French Cinema by Women on the work of Joanna Hogg, Lynne Ramsay, Lucile Hadzihalilovic and Celine Sciamma
