I am currently working as a postdoc research assistant on the ERC funded project 'The Idea of Animation' which explores the emergence of animation from 1915-1940 in France, the United States and the United Kingdom. Prior to this I was a postdoc research assistant on the project, ‘Colour in the 1920s: Cinema and Its Intermedial Contexts’ funded by the Leverhulme Trust. This project sought to examine colour in film during the 1920s within the intermedial context of colour's use in other fields during the decade.

My PhD, The Distribution and Exhibition of Kinemacolor in the UK and USA 1909-1916 examined the extent of the process’ infiltration into the UK and USA exhibition markets. It also explored Kinemacolor’s impact on the contemporary exhibition market and on the demand for other colour processes.

I have published and presented on topics including historical sensation and the digital archive, the exhibition of Kinemacolor and on fashion, colour and film in the 1920s.


I have taught on units relating to film history, aesthetics and theory.
