School Academic Conduct Officer
I grew up in North Yorkshire, where the seeds of my interest in the Middle Ages were probably planted by childhood trips to Fountains Abbey. A few school holidays spent in the company of the York Archaeological Trust did nothing to dampen my enthusiasm, and I headed north to study Medieval History at the University of St Andrews. I stayed there for five years, before relocating to the University of Oxford for doctoral study.
I had the good fortune to spend the next three years first as a lecturer at Balliol College, Oxford, and then as the Osborn Fellow in Medieval History and Culture at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. In 2015, I returned to Scotland to join the School of History, Classics and Archaeology here in Edinburgh.
2016–present: Reviews editor (pre-1100), The Mediaeval Journal.
