I am a writer, researcher, editor, and curator. My poems and short stories have appeared or are forthcoming in Tears in the FenceStand, Poetry & Audience, Berfrois, Flash, The Stockholm Review of Literature, Zoomorphic, and many others.

Research interests

I am currently working on two research projects. The first is a monograph on representations of abortion in southern African fiction. I am also starting a creative-critical project on planetary health and contemporary poetry. 

I have worked as a research intern on the AHRC-funded network The Risks of Childbirth in Historical Perspective, as co-curator of an exhibition titled Bearing Different Risks at the Thackray Medical Museum, and as founder of the Leeds Animal Studies Network.
