My research interests focus on medieval French and Occitan literature, especially of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, with an interest in manuscripts and the material context of medieval texts; currently I am working particularly on the French of medieval England. More broadly, I am interested in the reception of literature; the uses of the past; the representation of the unfamiliar; narrative aesthetics; and theories of translation.

I offer modules on medieval French and Occitan literature and culture, as well as co-teaching an introductory first-year literature module. I also teach French language. In 2017 I won the University of Exeter Student Guild award for Best Postgraduate Supervisor.
