Personal profile


I completed my PhD at King's College London in collaboration with Shakespeare's Globe, having previously studied on their collaborative MA. I also hold an MFA in Dramaturgy from Columbia University. 

My currect focus is my Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship Project, 'Shakespeare and Consent.' This asks two key questions: How can a dramaturgical reading of early modern depictions of consent illuminate and contextualise Shakespeare's most complex and controversial depictions of consent? And, especially in the wake of the #MeToo movement, how are contemporary theatremakers working to navigate the (in)ability of characters to meaningfully consent in Shakespeare's plays?
