I completed a Ph.D. in Romantic Literature at the University of London and an M.Phil. in British Romantic Studies at Pembroke College, Oxford. I have a keen interest in the precursors of psychoanalytic and Jungian theory in Romantic Literature, theories of the imagination in the 18th and 19th Centuries, as well as the role of Natural Philosophy and the exchange between Romantic Literature and the works of the early 'scientists', a word coined during the Romantic period. I specialise in the literary and philosophical writings of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. I recently published my first book with Cambridge entitled 'Coleridge's Chrysopoetics: Authorship, Alchemy and Imagination' and am currently working on my second book.
