I am PhD student researching how the afterlife has been represented on screen. The afterlife is a thematic thread that offers a historical and transnational exploration of film from the silent era to contemporary cinema. Informed by film, cultural and death studies, my research explores the impact of death and attitudes towards mortality on film and examines cinematic constructions of the unknowable. Alongside my research, I work as a Film Programmer and am an Associate Lecturer.
