My interests lie mainly in the sciences and mythologies, and how these impact on literary imagination. For my doctoral research, I am exploring how late 19th to early 20th-century psychiatric case studies and self-narratives transformed during this period and the ways in which this is reflected in Modernist literature in Germany. I translate early German psychiatric texts and I have co-authored several journal articles about pioneers in the field of psychiatric genetics.
I completed my undergraduate in German Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, where I also received my master’s degree.
