University of Kent
PhD Candidate/Assistant Lecturer

I am a 4th year PhD candidate in Film Studies at the University of Kent supervised by Murray Smith and Margrethe Bruun Vaage. My dissertation takes a cognitive-analytic approach to the study of time, timing, and temporality in contemporary narrative film, television, and video. This year at SCSMI, I'll be giving a follow-up presentation to my paper from last year on comic timing. In Helsinki, I'll be discussing the timing of suspense in suspense-thrillers and horror films (AKA "What's so scary about time?").
