I received my B.A. in English from Hillsdale College and my M.St. in English Literature (650-1550) from St. Hilda's College at the University of Oxford. I am a medievalist and a codicologist. My primary research interests are Early Middle English literature, late 12th and early 13th century manuscript culture, and the interaction of English and Anglo-Norman in post-Conquest Britain.


I study medieval English and French literature (primarily from the 13th-15th centuries), and I am currently serving as one of UVa's Medieval Studies graduate student representatives. My academic interests include gender and sexuality studies, virginity studies, Mediterranean trade networks, manuscript studies, and contemporary medievalisms and adaptations. My personal interests include cooking and hiking with my badly behaved dog, Moose.
