Originally from the heart of the Midlands, I first came to UEA to study for my BA in English Literature. Following this, I pursued an MA in the Culture of the European Renaissance (including Venice programme) at the University of Warwick's Centre for the Study of the Renaissance. Now I'm back at UEA (and the fine city of Norwich) conducting doctoral research into the writings of Maffeo Vegio (1407 – 1458). For more details about this, please see the ‘Research’ tab.

I present my research at national and international conferences, and keenly participate in public engagement work, such as the 'Unlocking the Archive' project, which brings this academic expertise to a wider audience. I have also taught on the undergraduate modules 'Literature in History I' and 'Shakespeare', as well as the CHASE 'Latin for Medievalists and Early Modernists' course, which I co-organise with colleagues from UEA and Kent. In addition to this, I conduct private Latin tuition.

When I’m not working with pre-modern texts and images, I enjoy travelling, and experimenting in the kitchen. I also love music (listening and playing) and painting.
