- PhD Candidate in the Faculty of English
I studied English literature for my BA at Doshisha University, Kyoto. An undergraduate exchange programme to St Catharine’s College drew me back to Cambridge for an MPhil in Modern and Contemporary Literature. I am currently a PhD candidate at Newnham College.
My current research focuses on the synergetic echoes between the poetry and prose of Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) and Walter de la Mare (1873-1956), with particular attention to ghostly sounds, imagining the unknown, and experiences of reading and writing.
Other research interests include rhythm, style, patterning; poetic knowing and belief; embodied experience of reading; sensory and synaesthetic perception in literature; ghostliness in literary language; notebooks and manuscripts; sound studies.
