After submitting my PhD dissertation to the University of Cambridge in 2017, I became a Junior Research Fellow at Peterhouse. My research focusses on modern and contemporary literature, especially Irish writers, although I have published essays and academic journal articles on a range of topics (philosophy, religion, cinema) in forums such as Essays in Criticism, Modernism/modernity, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and The Brooklyn Rail. At Cambridge, I teach and lecture on modernism & the short story, contemporary literature, the history of literary theory, and practical criticism. I am available to supervise dissertations on any of these topics, as well as the writing of James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Seamus Heaney, and Don DeLillo.
