Research area(s)

I specialise in inclusive education, with particular focus on Disability Theory and Queer Theory.

In my literary research I am particularly concerned with the representation of disabled and gendered bodies on the seventeenth-century stage, and with the ways in which that representation has solidifed contemporary understandings of socially constructed fixed binary sex and the non-normate body.
