International politics, phenomenology, affect, ecocriticism, 19th/20th century history, music analysis.

I am a scholar of (trans)nationalism and the environmental humanities, exploring music, sound, and other forms of culture in Slavonic and Anglo-American contexts. My methods are at once affective, political, and spatial, examining space-place relations in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. In my doctoral project, these interests converge upon the figure of Antonín Dvořák, whose output exemplifies shifting notions of space, identity, and belonging that emerged at this time. But I have a wider interest in developing new theoretical apparatuses, using resources derived from the humanities and social sciences more broadly. My doctoral research is supervised by Professor Daniel Grimley.
