Jaice is a second year PhD student at Brunel University, London, researching improvisation in comedy and its relation to Lacanian psychoanalysis. Her interest in humour developed in 2012 while studying for her Masters in Psychoanalysis and Contemporary Society, also at Brunel, which culminated in her completing a dissertation on self-deprecating humour and Lacanian psychoanalysis. She further developed her understanding of the writings of Jacques Lacan while attending the Psychoanalytic Studies programme at the Centre For Freudian Analysis and Research. Jaice was the first PhD student affiliated to Brunel’s Centre for Comedy Studies Research, and her aim is to continue to cultivate a discourse between the two disciplines of psychoanalysis and comedy studies.
