The primary focus of my research is on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century literature. I have a particular interest in the work of Thomas Hardy. I have published a monograph entitled Thomas Hardy and the Law (Edinburgh University Press, 2013) and an edited collection of essays entitled Victorian Time: Technologies, Standardizations, Catastrophes (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013), which includes an essay on Hardy. I am co-editor of a collection of essays on neglected Victorian writers, Victorian Fiction beyond the Canon, which is forthcoming with Palgrave Macmillan in 2016. I am currently writing a monograph on Maud Gonne (forthcoming with UCD Press) and editing a companion volume to Victorian Time, entitled Literature and Modern Time: Technological Modernity, Glimpses of Eternity, Experiments in Time (forthcoming with Palgrave Macmillan).
