Room Number: ArtsTwo 4.09


After completing my BA in English Literature at King’s College London in 2000, I studied at QMUL on the MA in Film and Communication.

I have taught Film History and Theory for the School since 2002, and my interest in the enhancement and development of the student learning experience in the school led to my taking up of the post of Student Experience Manager between 2012 and 2017.


Research Interests:

My research interests include:

  • Science fiction, fantasy and horror cinema
  • Japanese animation and digital media and their socio-historic contexts
  • Matt’s doctoral thesis was on the representation of adolescence in Japanese anime, videogames and horror film at the millennium
