Proffil personol


I work with interdiciplinary approaches in both my research and in my teaching. My work on Creative Modern Languages has recently received funding from the British Academy (Talent Development Award 2021). Our online open hub for creative assessment and research in Modern Languages can be found at I was awarded AberSEED funding for a second phase of the project with a focus on ‘Creative Assessment’ in March 2024. 

My research on performance philosophy & politics, drama and theatre, and on drama and dialogue translation focuses on performative processes in politics and culture, the New Tragic, and on the translation of postdramatic theatre scripts. Many of my translations of contemporary German and British theatre have been commissioned by agents and theatres in the UK, US, Germany and Austria.

AberSEED recipient for Creative Assessment project from March-June 2024. 

My research generally focuses on three broad areas and themes:

In Theatre & Performance Studies, my main interests are Performance Philosophy & Politics, Lacanian Psychoanalysis & Zizek, Sarah Kane and the New Tragic.

In Translation Studies, I focus on dialogue translation and on cultural translation related to Television, Film and Theatre.

My linguistic research is mostly based on Creative Assessment, German Grammar and translation. My work on German Grammar has resulted in a social media project titled MONKEY RAISINS, MONKEY NUTS. Follow us on Twitter @monkeyraisins.

I welcome applications from graduates for MA, MPhil or PhD research projects in any of these areas.
