About Me

I am a medievalist based at the University of Oxford with research interests ranging from late medieval lyrics and musical performance to pilgrimage and Jewish-Christian relations.

In 2018 I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English (First Class Honours) from the University of York. This was followed by a Master of Studies in English 650-1550 at the University of Oxford. After a year working in development and fundraising at Christ Church, Oxford, I returned to academia and am currently working towards a DPhil in Medieval and Modern Languages at the University of Oxford, funded by a Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarship and a Balliol Dervorguilla Scholarship. I am based at the Publication Before Print Doctoral Centre and my research, supervised by Dr Marion Turner and Dr Helen Swift, focuses on scribal correction, error and variation in late medieval carols.

Outside of academia I am involved in a number of creative projects, including editing and managing the The Wandering Academic blog. When I am not at my desk I can normally be found in the choir stalls or out on a cycle or long walk. I am currently trying to complete 30 ‘pilgrimages’ in memory of my friend, Becca Henderson.
