As Reader in Film and Television Aesthetics, I have considerable expertise in the area of film and television style, interpretation and evaluation, with an emphasis on contemporary Hollywood and the US serial drama. My work spans further afield via research into the modern phenomenon on Nordic noir and Swedish crime fiction, and the American television show-runner. I am also the Programme Tutor for the MA in Film and Television Aesthetics, and welcome PhD applications in associated fields. I am currently supervising three PhD students undertaking theses in slapstick comedy on film and television; the British paranoid thriller; and US television drama in relation to media convergence. My latest book is 'Swedish Crime Fiction: Novel, Film, Television' for Manchester University Press.
