In 2018 I completed a PhD in Creative Writing from The University of the West of Scotland. My thesis, Signal to Noise: The Holocaust and a Third Generation Perspective, is an exegesis and accompanying creative work. Please contact me for access if you are a researcher working in a relevant field.

Before I wrote fiction and non-fiction I was a linguistics postgraduate student and Research Assistant at the London School of Developmental Language Disorders and Cognitive Neuroscience. You can download my 2005 Masters thesis for free here:
