British Academy Talent Development Award Holder 2021 - Project: 'Artistic Research & Creative Assessment in Modern Languages'

My research generally focuses on three broad areas and themes:

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

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

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

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