I'm a former BBC radio producer with a specialism in arts and foreign affairs programmes. For over a decade I worked in the Radio Arts Unit, leading teams of producers on BBC Radio 4's daily arts programme Front Row and BBC Radio 3's Night Waves, as well as producing Open Book, Saturday Review and The Verb. Before joining Radio Arts I worked as a reporter and an analyst at the BBC World Service. I have also produced the award-winning series Crossing Continents, and made several radio documentaries for BBC Radios 3 & 4 ranging across literature, culture and current affairs subjects. My educational qualifications include a BA (Hons) in English (York) and an MA in Comparative Literature (SOAS); I'm now undertaking a PhD (Sussex) exploring the radio works of modernist writers at the BBC.
I teach on the Radio Production BA Honours and Journalism BA Honours courses, and lead modules on International Journalism and Professional Practice & Employability. My other practice-based teaching includes Final Radio and Journalism Projects, Advanced Online Media, Multi-Track Audio and Arts & Entertainment Journalism; I also lecture on the theory module Story, Sound, Image & Text.
Research interests include: modernism and BBC Radio, with particular reference to the writers Louis MacNeice, E.M. Forster, George Orwell and Samuel Beckett; spatiality in the radio feature; travel and transnationalism.
