Previously she worked as a PhD researcher with Cardiff University (also the University of Amsterdam), studying the way 21st-century culture uses and abuses the Gothic narratives of the 19th century. For the past three years she has been reading and writing about Frankenfiction, a.k.a. the mashup of fantastical monsters and historical fiction. She is the author of several academic articles on remix, neo-Victorian fiction, and popular culture.
