Hi I’m Ellie. I’m a lecturer in Media at Birmingham City University where I am course director for the Foundation years across the School of Media.

I am also currently a PhD student within Stage and Screen at Sheffield Hallam University (SHU). I’m researching the current U.K live comedy circuit from a feminist stand point. You can find the basics of what I’m up to on my SHU profile page. You can also find more info on my research and published works here.

Never one to hang about for an opportunity, in 2017 I co-founded Mixed Bill a comedy and gender research network with Kate Fox and Lisa Moore.

I started my PhD in October 2013 and I’m a part-time student teaching and working alongside my research. I decided to blog along the way in an attempt to force myself to reflect on what I’m up to as I go along (when you’re spinning so many plates it is easy to forget how important that is).

I’m in at the PhDeepend but am waving not drowning.
