I am currently completing a PhD entitled Andrew Marvell and Privacy. The project began at the University of Geneva and will be submitted at the University of Leicester.
Marvell, a seventeenth-century poet and politician, is my primary research interest. Other interests include literature of the English Civil War, writing and visual art (particularly mirrors), and public/private divides throughout the ages.
