I am a writer, academic, researcher and translator. Until 2014, I was Reader in Cultural Theory and Director of Postgraduate Studies (Media) at Coventry University. Currently, I am a research fellow at Coventry University and a Privatdozent at Heidelberg University.

I studied English and French at Heidelberg University, and English Literature and Critical & Cultural Theory at Cardiff University and I have published books and articles on a variety of aspects in English and comparative literature, critical & cultural theory, continental philosophy, cultural and media studies.

I am also a translator of cultural theory and philosophy from French into English (Derrida, Cixous, Stiegler), series editor of Critical Posthumanisms (Brill) and director of the Critical Posthumanism Network.
