He has examined the works of Virginia Woolf, Oliver Lodge, and Hugh MacDiarmid to name a few. He is currently a tutor at Merton college, Oxford, and a professor of modern literature and culture at Oxford University. Currently, Michael is working on a project examining science, poetry, and specialisation in the early 1900's, looking at the collision points of science and poetry.
