Her research focuses on entertainment media histories; media convergence; and the baroque as a transcultural and transhistorical phenomenon. Her current research explores the important role played by entertainment culture in the advancement of robotics and automata. Her publications include Neo-Baroque Aesthetics and Contemporary Entertainment (MIT Press 2004), Science Fiction Experiences (2010), The Horror Sensorium; Media and the Senses (2012) and the edited books The Contemporary Comic Book Superhero (editor, 2009), Neo baroques: From Latin America to the Hollywood Blockbuster (2016, co-edited), and Fans and Videogames: Histories, Fandom, Archives (Routledge, 2017, co-edited). She has published numerous essays in refereed journals and anthologies and is currently working on three books: Batman: Myth and Superhero; Robots and Entertainment Culture; and Experiencing Space: Sensory Encounters from Baroque Rome to Neo-Baroque LasVegas (with Dr. Lisa Beaven, La Trobe University).
