My general research areas are contemporary American literature and culture, and theories of life writing with a particular focus on gender. I have also published with in the area of intercultural approaches to literature and have an interest in migration literature.

I have co-edited (with Kate McLoughlin), the anthology Tove Jansson Rediscovered (2007). The monograph Writing Feminist Lives, in which I outline auto/biographical approaches to the historicizing of the modern women's movement, was published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2017.   

My current research deals with American film noir, adaptation and female authors of noir fiction.
