Her research interests include modern and contemporary Anglophone literature, gender studies, postcolonial and decolonial theory, and the digital humanities.

On any given weekend, you can find Victoria curled up on the couch with her cat and a book, enjoying a pint at a local brewery, or taking in the sights and sounds of the city.
