I teach and research medieval literature and culture at the University of Southampton. My undergraduate teaching and MA supervision ranges across Old English Literature, Arthurian Literature, Chaucer, and medieval monstrosity. My main research interest is in medieval experiences and representations of space, including maps, travel and pilgrimage writing, and geographical iterature. I am particularly interested in the reception of medieval travel and pilgrimage writing, including the Book of Sir John Mandeville. I am keen to hear from applicants interested in PhD study in any of these areas. I am an active member of the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Culture at Southampton.
