My research focuses on nineteenth- and twentieth-century English and German literature, especially Romanticism and Modernism, and on theory from German Idealism to deconstruction. 

I am happy to supervise graduate students working in English and German Romanticism and in Theory, in particular late-eighteenth and early nineteenth-century philosophy and contemporary theory (deconstruction, the Frankfurt School, just for example).
