Areas of expertise My primary field of research is Victorian poetry, especially the work of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Other strong interests include nineteenth-century American literature, and the work of Rudyard Kipling, Marcel Proust, and Bob Dylan.

My current research includes a project on the 'figure of the singer' in English poetry, and (with Samantha Matthews) an edition of Henry James's The Bostonians; I am also planning a collaborative project on the use of French words and phrases in English literature.
