I’m a former BBC radio producer with a specialism in arts and foreign affairs programmes. For over a decade I worked in the Radio Arts Unit, leading teams of producers on BBC Radio 4’s daily arts programme Front Row and BBC Radio 3’s Night Waves, as well as producing Open Book, Saturday Review and The Verb. Before joining Radio Arts I worked as a reporter and an analyst at the BBC World Service. I have also produced the award-winning series Crossing Continents, and made several radio documentaries for BBC Radios 3 & 4 ranging across literature, culture and current affairs subjects. My educational qualifications include a BA (Hons) in English (York) and an MA in Comparative Literature (SOAS); I’m now undertaking a PhD (Sussex) exploring the radio works of modernist writers at the BBC (George Orwell, E.M. Forster, Louis MacNeice and Samuel Beckett). My research is concerned with the intersection between literary and broadcast modernisms, and in particular the geospatial aesthetics of mid-twentieth century BBC Radio.
