Personal profile


I am a GTA in the History, Geography and Social Sciences department, I received my BA in History with Politics from Edge Hill University and my MA in Medieval Studies from the University of York. My supervisors are Lindy Brady and Alisdair Dobie.


Research Interests

My work focuses on historical and literary connections across the high and late medieval British Isles, I work with material in Middle English, Medieval Irish, Middle Welsh, Old French, Scots and Latin. My primary focus is on the various uses of pseudo-historical narratives in political rhetoric and what these can reveal about identity. I am also interested in border societies and medieval political processes, especially with regards to violence and post-conflict societies.


I teach across the BA History degree programme at Edge Hill. In particular, I am responsible for assisting modules on medieval and early modern history.


Research Communication

I often seek opportunities to present my work at conferences and in other similar engagements.
