I am a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University  of Sheffield, studying the bracket in early modern literature. At the moment, I'm writing a book about the history and culture of punctuation for Reaktion Books.


I'm also a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker (2021).




After my PhD, I spent two years as a researcher at the University of Geneva, working on a project on Shakespeare in Germany with Professor Lukas Erne. For information, see 'Research' or click here.




Receiving a BA and M.Phil. in English Literature from the University of Cambridge, I went on to do a PhD on refrains in the sixteenth century at the University of St Andrews.















I also write short stories and creative non-fiction essays.
