My research background is in language and literary studies. Following a BA in French and Italian at the University of Cambridge, I completed a PhD in Modern & Medieval Languages in 2012, also at the University of Cambridge. I have held teaching and research positions in the School of English at the University of Kent and, most recently, as a Departmental Lecturer in French at the University of Oxford. My interest in the Medical Humanities stems from my postdoctoral work at the University of Nottingham with the 'Hungry for Words' project, exploring arts and humanities approaches to understanding and raising awareness of eating disorders in men.
