I joined the University of Stirling as Lecturer in Film and Media and member of the Centre for Gender and Feminist Studies in 2015.
I completed a PhD in Television Studies at the University of Glasgow in 2010. My doctoral research focused on the relationship between representations of teenage sexuality and sexual violence in UK and US teen drama series, paying close attention to intersections of generic, medium and narrative specificities. Since then, I have taught film and television studies at the Universities of Leeds, Glasgow and Royal Holloway. I have also previously worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Stirling for the Consortium for Research into Arts and Technology Scotland (CReATeS).
I welcome PhD applications and enquiries on the following areas: television narrative; television and emotion; social issues on television; screen representations of gender, sexuality, sexual violence and/or age; feminist film and television theory; teen genres; gender in the screen industries.
I am also the former co-editor of the Commentary and Criticism and book reviews sections of Feminist Media Studies.
