Her first book, Death and Desire in Car Crash Culture: A Century of Romantic Futurisms (Peter Lang, 2013) explored the fascination with speed and the car crash in cultural production. Her co-edited collection of essays on contemporary approaches to death, The Power of Death, (Berghahn, 2014) and her co-edited volume Alternative Worlds (Peter Lang, 2014) will both be published this autumn.
Her current academic and curatorial research focuses on Translation Games, a  research and exhibition project around the theme of translation in literature and the fine arts, which was funded by a KCI Creative Futures award in its initial phase. Together with the artist Sam Treadaway she also runs the bookwork project Revolve:R, an exploration of visual communication in collaboration with 24 international artists.
