Research and Publications


My current research explores a number of different but interrelated areas including: nostalgia in contemporary screen cultures, digital preservation, TV interfaces, and the role of "big data" in 21st century television. Other areas of interest include televised sports, contemporary documentary, and emerging models of television distribution.


I have published a number of peer-reviewed articles (see publications page) and I am the author of Time, Technology and Narrative Form in Contemporary US Television Drama (2017, Palgrave).
