My research interests focus on screen studies and comics studies, particularly in the intersections of economic and aesthetic concerns with regards to film, television, comics and their historical interactions.

Specific interests include the classical Hollywood studio system; independent film & television production; adaptation; genre studies; comics history; media ecology. My previous work examined the history of the B-movie and its relationship with television in the latter’s early history, while my most recent work considers the interplay between film and television with comic books and strips in the early- to-mid 20th Century.

Current projects include one anthology chapter on comic book adaptations of modern cinema, one on class issues in 1970s Marvel comics and another about superhero comics and racial identity. I am also writing a book for Rutgers University Press’s ‘Quick Takes’ series on comic book movies.
