Career Details

I am an early career researcher currently working on my PhD in Film Studies, specifically in anime and adaptation studies. In addition to my academic work primarily on Japanese animation, I am also a film critic and member of the OAFFC (the Online Association of Female Film Critics) and GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Critics), with bylines at publications like Little White Lies, The Skinny, and Vulture.

I also engage in outreach work at the Dukes Theatre, promoting independent cinema at the venue and encouraging post-film discussions following selected screenings.
