Many of our academics speak to the media as experts in their field of research. If you are a journalist, please contact the University’s Media and PR Team:
I work on twentieth-century poetry (Robert Frost and Edward Thomas), Thomas Hardy, ecology and contemporary poetry (especially Jorie Graham, Kathleen Jamie, Mary Oliver), on Romantic Period writing, particularly Anglo-Italian literatures, and on ideas of place in nineteenth and twentieth century writing.
I have contributed to the BBC Radio 4 Series, 'Natural Histories'.
I led the team which produced a smartphone app: Romantic Bristol: Writing the City
My poetry has been published by The Brodie Press
