Research Biography

I completed my BA (Hons)/BSc at the University of Melbourne and Monash University before earning an MPhil (With Distinction) in Romanticism and the Forms of Modernity at the University of Glasgow. Since completing my PhD at the University of Melbourne in 2009, I've been the recipient of a number of research grants, awarded by (amongst others) the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH, University of Edinburgh), the Australian Academy of the Humanities (AAH), and the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe 1100-1800). After a short stint as a lecturer at the University of Queensland, I arrived at Flinders in 2015 to take up an ongoing post as Lecturer in English.
