I began a Teaching Fellowship at King’s in September 2017, convening a course on Old English language and literature and teaching Old and Middle English literature.

I completed my BA in English at King’s and Master of Studies in English (650-1550) at Oxford University, before returning to King’s for my PhD. My PhD was a close critical study of the earliest history of the world in English, the Old English Orosius. It approached the text with diverse but intersecting approaches and methodologies: mapping and time; gender and power; materiality and the Matter of Rome; and faith and entanglement. 

Selected publications
Old and Middle English literature
Expertise and public engagement
I have been involved in numerous collaborative public engagement projects, including Colm Cille’s Spiral for the Londonderry City of Culture 2013 and the Midsummer Water Day at Somerset House in 2014. I have contributed to the project, Getting Medieval with Comics: How to Be Human in the Middle Ages, which was supported by the King’s Cultural Institute and transformed medieval narratives and artwork into contemporary comic-style art. I have also given public talks on ‘Anglo-Saxon views of the world’ at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk and I am currently developing an article for the medieval section of the British Library’s digital resource, Discovering Literatures (, which is due to launch in January 2018.
