My research interests are in Spanish cultural studies and film studies, especially Spanish popular film, the development of film cultures in Spain (reception, consumption and fandom), and the cross-cultural dialogue between Spain and other world cinemas (international traditions of the horror genre, global psychotronic culture). Publications in these areas include two co-edited volumes, Cult Movies: The Cultural Politics of Oppositional Taste (Manchester University Press, 2003) and Spanish Popular Cinema (Manchester University Press, 2004), and the monograph Spanish Horror Film (Edinburgh University Press, 2013). I was Visiting Lecturer at the Universitat Rovira i Virgil (Spain), Departamento de Estudios de Comunicación, April-June 2009.
