My research interests lie within animal studies, as well as a methodology that draws from feminism, posthumanism and ecocriticism. My current PhD project on the linked identities of women and cows from 1600-1830 is supported by my recently completed MRes dissertation surrounding concepts of human/animal lactation in the seventeenth century.
