I am currently Digitisation Support Officer in the Heritage Made Digital section at the British Library, and was previously Project Officer for the Polonsky Foundation England and France Digitisation Project (700-1200) in the section of Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts. Prior to this, I worked as a Document Controller in rail engineering (TSP Projects, York, 2013-2018), and I have held a research associateship at the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of York continuously since 2011.
A monograph based on my doctoral thesis, titled Before the Books of Hours: Late Anglo-Saxon Prayer in Practice is forthcoming from Medieval Institute Publications, University of Western Michigan Press.
