I came to Liverpool in 2006 as a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, having previously held the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at the University of Manchester. I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate studies at New College, Oxford, and taught in Oxford for three years before taking up a DAAD grant to conduct research in Berlin.
I teach and research contemporary German-language literature and culture and also translate German literature. I am particularly interested in images of Berlin in fiction and have written extensively on Nobel prize-winner Herta Müller.
