I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at University College Dublin, researching Ireland's literatures of coercive confinement. I received my PhDs at Trinity College Dublin (2017) and the University of Antwerp (2021) and have worked at Masaryk University, Brno and Charles University, Prague.

I have published two monographs: Samuel Beckett in Confinement: The Politics of Closed Space (2020) and The Making of Samuel Beckett's Not I / Pas moi, That Time / Cette fois and Footfalls / Pas (2021). Together with Christina Morin (University of Limerick) and Cóilín Parsons (Georgetown University), I am a founding editor of the Bloomsbury Academic book series Global Perspectives in Irish Literary Studies.
