I am Professor of Modern Literature at the University of Bristol, UK, where I also direct the Centre for Health, Humanities and Science, and serve as co-lead of the Wellcome Trust ISSF-3-funded Medical Humanities Research Strand, administered by the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research. I have published on modernist literature, perception, medicine, and philosophies of embodiment. My book, Beckett, Technology and the Body, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2009 (paperback edition 2010). Samuel Beckett and Medicine (Cambridge UP) is forthcoming. I am co-editor of The Body and the Arts (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009) and Beckett and Phenomenology (Continuum, 2009). More recently, I have edited The Cambridge Companion to the Body in Literature (Cambridge UP, 2015, with David Hillman) and The Bloomsbury Companion to Modernist Literature (Bloomsbury, 2018, with Mark Nixon). I am a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Beckett Studies (Edinburgh University Press), and the journal's Review Editor.
