Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer in Film and Television in the School of Creative Arts, where I teach on BA and MA programmes, supervise doctoral students, and lead the Media Research Group. I am also the Research Admissions Tutor for the School. I joined Creative Arts after completing an AHRC funded PhD on horror film remakes at De Montfort University, and I previously taught at De Montfort and Birmingham City University. I have published and presented on horror media, seriality, remaking and adaptation, including monographs The Shining (Liverpool University Press, 2017) and  Reanimated: The Conteporary American Horror Film Remake (Edinburgh University Press, 2022). In addition to adaptation and serial horror, I am also interested in analogue aesthetics in the contemporary horror genre, and much of my new research focuses on this area. I co-founded and co-convene the Horror Studies SIG of the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS), and am the series co-editor of Hidden Horror Histories (Liverpool University Press).
