I have joined Film and Screen Studies at Monash university in 2008. Currently I am an ARC DECRA research fellow based in FSS at Monash University (ARC DECRA 2016-2018 DE160101138). My inter-disciplinary research work takes place at the intersection of cinema studies, cultural studies, Slavic studies, philosophy and psychology. I have published extensively in the areas of film theory and criticism, cultural history and memory, identity and subjectivity. My current projects include a book-length study of narrative theories, further work on the interaction of old and new media, and an investigation of how contemporary film theory intersects with the integrative science of mind and brain.
