An overview of my approach to teaching, with specific attention to writing supervision, can be found here:

My Ph.D. research in the Department of Art and Design at Sheffield Hallam University (2018-2021 - supervisory team: Dr Sharon Kivland, Penny McCarthy, Dr Alice Bell) was developed through encounters with the prose of Alejandra Pizarnik, Cristina Campo, Roberto Calasso. In a thesis-work with no demarcation between creative and critical components, chimeric writing is practised and theorised: a composite, impure form of critical writing in the lineage of the Menippean satire and the Dialogues of the Dead, shaped by conversations with literature not translated in English; by the polyphonies, artifices and concealments of a bilingual self; by the sense of speechlessness and haunting when writing of works that cannot be instantly quoted.
