Biography

Before taking up my position as Lecturer in Translation Studies in Glasgow University in 2017, now Senior Lecturer (2022), I was teaching at University College London, where I completed my BA in Modern European Studies, MA in Italian Studies, and PhD entitled 'Women in Verga and Pirandello: From Page to Stage'. During this time, I gained various scholarships to the Scuola Normale di Pisa, the University of Bologna, and the University of Toronto. To prepare for my PhD, I carried out my preliminary research at the National Library in Paris and the Pirandello Institute in Rome, funded by the Italian orgianisation Il circolo.  

Research interests

My first book, A 'New' Woman in Verga and Pirandello: From Page to Stage (Legenda 2018), investigates the transposition of short stories to drama in the works of two leading Sicilian authors, Giovanni Verga (1840-1922) and Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936), focussing specifically on their representation of women which can be traced to Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House (1879). In uncovering the 'new' female voices, the book draws attention to the early actresses that were instrumental in transforming the women from 'page to stage', namely Eleonora Duse (1858-1924) and Marta Abba (1900-1988).

My co-edited volume with Christopher Stamatakis, Shakespeare, Italy, and Transnational Exchange (Routledge 2017), brings together international scholars from English literature, Modern Languages, Theatre and Performance, Translation Studies, and Comparative Literature, to offer new perspectives on vibrant exchanges between Shakespeare and Italian theatre, literary cultures, and politics, from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century,

Recent co-edited special issues include Six Characters as World Literature in the PSA: The Journal of the Pirandello Society in America (2020-2021) with Michael Subialka and Lisa Sarti, and Translation and Performance Cultures in Translation Studies, 15: 3 (2022), with Cristina Marinetti.
