Personal profile


I currently convene units in the area of Cultural Politics, Ethics and Digital Media & Technology Studies.

Prior to my current role, I taught in interdisciplinary contexts at a number of UK universities.

I have also convened, co-organised and co-taught a number of summer schools, doctoral training days and conferences, including:

2017: ‘The Cultural Politics of Empathy’ (Doctoral and Postdoctoral training day; University of Basel, Switzerland)

2016: ‘Contemporary Perspectives on the Given and the Made’ (Two week course at summer school convened by the German Academic Scholarship Foundation, together with Dr. Julius Greve)

2015: ‘Cultural Translations’ (Doctoral training day; Cardiff University)

2014: ‘Cultural Politics of Memory’ (three day international conference; Cardiff University organised together with Prof Chris Weedon)



Research interests

How do technological objects, artificial and linguistic structures shape human perception, emotion and interaction? What is at stake when engaging in cultural analysis today? In what ways is criticism a creative practice?  My work responds to these questions by pursuing research in Contemporary Thought, Cultural Studies, Literature and Media Studies.

My main research focus is the completion of a monograph that presents the bodily experience of shame as an affect shaped by the generative relationship between humanity and technology. It is from this vantage point that I rethink the ethical and political significance of the bodily automatisms (scruple, blushing, inhibition) that make shame and embarrassment so uncomfortably riveted to a feeling of singularity and isolation. My project is informed by Cultural Studies approaches to Cultural Politics and a wider range of critical and cultural theory, including emerging research paradigms such as affect theory and posthumanism.  

I am also involved in a number of editorial, research and translation projects that centre on the writings of the philosopher, literary author and anti-nuclear activist Günther Anders.
