My interest in Medieval History began as an undergraduate student at the University of St Andrews, leading me to pursue my studies to Masters level. In 2011, after completing my MLitt in St Andrews, I moved to Leicester to continue my research as a Ph.D student. My research is supervised by Professor Jo Story and focuses on Carolingian and Anglo-Saxon attempts to regulate the life of the canonical clergy in the eighth and ninth centuries. As such I am interested in political and religious developments that occurred in the early middle ages. I am also interested in the historiographical concept of 'reform' and how it is applied to the history of the Church in the early medieval period. I currently run the Anglo-Saxon Reading Group and the Latin Reading Group, these groups meet fortnightly and are open to any postgraduates who wish to explore the history of Anglo-Saxon England or who wish to improve their Latin.


As a Associate Tutor I teach the following course options: HS1100: Charlemagne: King and Emperor, Man and Myth and HS2001: History and Memory in the Early Middle Ages.  I am a tutorial group leader for HS1015: Monarchy and Society and for HS7023: Mastering Medieval Sources.
In 2014 I was awarded a Teaching Partnership Award for my contribution to teaching policy and provision in the School of History.
