"Much of my research focuses on gender and economic themes in Victorian and fin-de-siècle literature. I have also recently turned my attention to children’s literature, as well as popular horror (including Vampire Studies). I am interested in working with students on questions of class and social reform in nineteenth-century fiction, gender and feminist writings in the Victorian period, and horror fiction or representations of the monstrous 'Other' in policing bodies of desire."
