I am a Teaching Associate and a PhD candidate at Queen Mary (2020–2024). I research the law of 'sexual fraud' and its literary equivalent, ‘the bed trick’.

I received an MA in Critical Writing from the Royal College of Art, London; and a BA in English Literature from Trinity College, Dublin.  

I worked as Editor of The White Review from 2021–2023.

My forthcoming book, Pleasure Gardens, co-written with Skye Arundhati Thomas, is out with MACK in 2024.
