About me

My PhD research aims to understand how fanfiction authors reimagine women and non-binary characters through the fanfiction which they read and write, across a range of genres. The research will help paint a clear picture as to how and why women and non-binary characters are being reimagined in fanfiction communities, and what political, societal or feminist understandings are underpinning these reimaginings. These questions could also help to understand how the increase in women and non-binary characters in media has impacted the fanfiction community, as well as how this has impacted society more widely, and discussions of gender and gender politics in media.

I am also an associate lecturer on the first-year Psychology modules Introduction to Psychology and Psychology in Action, and am an Academic Personal Tutor for year 1 of the UWE Psychology programme. Additionally, I have also done some work as a student partner with the Academic Practice Directorate; contributing to two QAA-funded projects around making the language of assessment accessible for students and embedding inclusive assessment.
