My research focuses on three broad areas and themes:

In Theatre & Performance Studies, my main interests are Contemporary British&European Theatre, Performance Philosophy, Lacanian Psychoanalysis & Zizek, Sarah Kane and the New Tragic.

In Translation Studies, I focus on dialogue translation and on translation theory related to Television, Film and Theatre translation.

My linguistic research is mostly based on German Grammar and has resulted in a social media and book project titled MONKEY RAISINS, MONKEY NUTS.

I welcome applications from graduates for MA, MPhil or PhD research projects in any of these areas.
