Personal profile


My research focuses on Italian cinema, horror cinema, film sound and popular African cinema. I'm particularly interested in how film sound brings together questions of films' industrial production and questions of film form, merging the contextual and the textual. Much of my work suggests that the study of film sound can therefore help us to better understand films' complex interactions with the social and historical contexts in which they were made. My monograph, Sounding Out the Giallo is forthcoming and my co-edited volume Film Exhibition: The Italian Context (with Edward Bowen, Legenda) will come out in 2024. Additional articles have appeared in Screen, Discourse, the Journal of Italian Cinema & Media Studies, Sound Studies and L’Avventura.

Prior to completing my PhD, I was a practicing non-fiction filmmaker and I specialised in making filsm for the medical and healthcare sectors. My current teaching spans film history, film theory and film practice.
