Teaching Fellow; Medieval History
Affiliated research centresCentre for Medieval & Renaissance Studies
I did my BA (Hons) in English and History at the University of Sheffield before moving to the University of Southampton to study for an MA in Medieval and Renaissance Culture. I then moved to the University of Leeds, where I did my PhD in History, which was funded by an AHRC block grant doctoral scholarship. From September–December 2013 I was a Kluge Fellow in the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress. This was funded by an AHRC International Placement Scheme Award. I also received AHRC funding to undertake archival research in the Wrocław University Library in April 2014.
After submitting my doctoral thesis in August 2015, I worked as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Leeds until June 2016. I joined the School of History, Classics, and Archaeology here in September 2016 to take up a post as Teaching Fellow in Medieval History.
