Lucy teaches eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature. She works on the emotional impacts of surveillance in historical and contemporary settings, focused on gender and literary culture. 

Her main research interests are Romanticism, gender, and surveillance theory, with a focus on how surveillance and mechanisms of invigilation were socialised and internalised between 1780 and 1830, and how this feeds into our experiences today. She is particularly interested in the recovery and analysis of women’s experience of inspection in the long nineteenth century and has explored surveillance under the rubrics of the medicalised body, the domestic body, and sexual bodies. She is also interested in the intersection between Critical Disability Studies and Surveillance Studies. She has recently published a book called Gender, Surveillance, and Literature in the Romantic Period
