Biography

I joined UEA in 2014, having spent a year as an Irish Research Council postdoctoral fellow at Trinity College, Dublin. I completed my PhD at Stanford University and I did my BA, BA (Hons), and MA at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. 

My book Anecdotes of Enlightenment from Locke to Wordsworth (The University of Virginia Press, 2018) studies the role anecdotes play in eighteenth-century and romantic literature and philosophy. I'm also editing the works of the Norfolk clergyman Jermyn Pratt for the Norfolk Record Society. My current research concerns the relationship between intellectual and manaul labour. My work appears in the journals Eighteenth-Century LifeEighteenth-Century FictionEighteenth-Century Ireland, and the new Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics.
