I am a Lecturer in Film and Media and a member of the Centre for Gender & Feminist Studies.
I hold a PhD in Film Studies from the University of Glasgow. Before joining the University of Stirling in 2011, I taught Film and Media Studies at the University of Glasgow, the University of St Andrews and the University of East London. I have also played (professional) football/soccer in Germany, the US and Scotland. 

Teaching: My teaching experience includes modules on film and media theory, cultural theory, (media and communication) research methods, feminist film theory, television analysis, film history, digital media culture, media and sport, as well as modules on gender, sexuality and race. 
At Stirling, I teach on a range of film and media modules, including 'The Body in Screen Culture', 'Reading Film & Television', 'Gender & Representation', 'Cultural Theory' as well as 'Media I: Representation, Meaning & Identity. 

I also contribute to the core course Understanding Gender in the postgraduate programme in Gender Studies. 
I welcome enquiries from students and PhD applications in the areas of gender, queer and feminist theory, film philosophy, film phenomenology, and cinema and embodiment.

Research Interests:

My research interests are interdisciplinary and include gender and queer theory, feminist film and cultural criticism, question of identity, subjectivity and embodiment, film phenomenology, as well as media and sport.

I have published work on athleticism and cinema, dance in film, sport and (post)feminism, as well as on bodily performance and embodiment and/in film.

My current research engages specifically with queer critiques of traditional (film) phenomenology and explores questions of embodiment, sensuousness and affect in relation to a variety of film bodies.
