Biographical Information

I'm a Fellow, College Teaching Officer, and Director of Studies at Selwyn College, Cambridge. I did my BA in English at Robinson College, my MA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies at UCL, then returned to Robinson for my PhD, which was funded by the Judy and Nigel Weiss Scholarship. I teach for papers 3, 4 and 5 at Part I, and Papers 5 and 6 at Part II, and supervise dissertations relating to my areas of interest. When I'm not working, I like cooking, badly gardening, walking near the coast, and coveting other people's dogs.

Research Interests

I'm interested in dream poetry, from the late Middle Ages to the late Early Modern period. I'm also interested in Chaucerian afterlives and reception, medievalism, and the children's fantasy writer Diana Wynne Jones. I'm currently working on a book project on the afterlives of dream poetry, which will involve Chaucer, Pope, Douglas Oliver, Pre-Raphaelites, and everything in between. My PhD work looked at conventions, and I'm interested in tracing ideas and literary influences over long periods of time.
