Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently completing a monograph for Palgrave Macmillan, Donald Winnicott and the Politics of Care, due in 2021. More broadly, my work encompasses psychoanalysis, care theory, cultural studies and critical theory. I am interested in psychoanalysis as a practice of care, and in the relationship betwen care practices and politics. I have a particular interest in the work of Winnicott, psychoanalytic feminism, and understanding and theorising the relationship between psychoanalysis, politics and modernity.

Supervisory Interests

I am interested in supervising PhD projects on any aspect of psychoanalytic theory and its intersection with cultural, social and political phenomana including, for example, literature, film, critical theory, philosophy, history, politics. I am also interested in supervising students on projects related to care and/or feminism.
