About me

I hold my undergraduate degree in Law from the London School of Economics and Political Science and my Masters in Law and Society from Brunel University. I did my undergraduate studies in English Literature at the University of Westminster. I have published academic work in the field of psychoanalysis, particularly as it relates to the concept of Law and violence in the adult short stories of Roald Dahl. I have also contributed scholarly book reviews to the Literary London journal and to the London Fictions website. My current research focuses on the construction of law as the most authoritative form of truth, or representation, as it is contrasted against the competing truth of the photographic in Victorian writing.

Teaching

I was the second marker for the final year coursework for the English Literature module on Literature and Psychoanalysis in the first year of my PhD studies.
