Personal profile

Research interests

I am primarily interested in the intersection of children's literature and the platformisation of reading and literary cultures. I have previously conducted research on BookTok (the literary subculture on TikTok) and continue to do so alongside my PhD.

In my PhD, I also look at the platformisation of reading and how this (paradoxically) relates to the practice of re-reading books. I particularly look at adults re-reading children's and young adult books and draw on a framework of age, affect, attention, and affordance.

I also take a keen interest in Life Writing Studies and Translation Studies owing to my previous engagement with the topic, both in terms of teaching and research.
