zb-adjusted-headshot-1She enjoys working in the fields of Literary Criticism and Theory and Victorian Studies. Her PhD thesis focuses on Higher Education Policy and the Humanities and understanding ‘Value’ in the Neo-Liberal Market.

Her approach may be interdisciplinary but is always within the humanistic tradition.
