I have two areas of research interest – design and aesthetics in film and television, and art and artists’ biographies in Renaissance Rome and Florence.
With Simon Barker I have co-authored a groundbreaking study of production design for television, Reading Between Designs (2003), and more recently I have written TARDISbound (2011) a book on the British SF television series Doctor Who and its trans-media migrations. I am currently working on a large-scale, theoretically informed study of production design, costume and fashion in film and television, provisionally entitled “Immaterial Culture.” Over the last decade I have also published three major articles on the relationship between the medical theory of the four humors and the arts in Renaissance Italy.
I taught Art History at the University of Manchester before coming to the University of Redlands.
