Emily received her PhD from the University of Nottingham in 2009 and worked at various universities, including Brunel, as a Visiting Lecturer before taking on a full-time staff position at Brunel in 2018. As a lecturer in English, specialising in World Literatures in English, she is particularly interested in exploring globalization, cosmopolitanism and diasporic literatures, often through the lens of trauma and affect theories. She has also published in relation to contemporary British literature, Gothic fiction, and queer writing, again often in relation to the abovesaid theories.
