I am currently undertaking part-time research, and part-time teaching, at the University of Edinburgh for a Ph.D. English Literature - having already completed a Masters by Research in the subject. I have also completed a BA degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Oxford. However, following the successful completion of the course, I realized that my true passion was in literary analysis and I returned to my home town of Edinburgh to begin my research. As well as working on my thesis, I also support teaching staff with seminars and lectures for a range of modules, including Modernist Aesthetics, Critical Theory, Poet-Critics, Contemporary Post-Colonial Writing, Contemporary American Fiction, and Victorian Literature.
