I'm Associate Professor of Portuguese and World Literatures in the department of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics. My teaching focuses on the cultures of the Portuguese- and English-speaking worlds, critical theory, and topics related to race, gender, sexuality and disability. My current research explores the historical and present role of British institutions, particularly universities, in the structural marginalisation of disabled people.
