I was previously Lecturer in English Language and Linguistics at the University of Glasgow, and a Teaching Affiliate at the University of Nottingham.
I have also worked on research projects based at King's College London, the University of Leicester, and the Institute for Name-Studies here in Nottingham.
I was educated at the University of Nottingham: BA English, 2012; MA Viking & Anglo-Saxon Studies (Institute for Name-Studies Research Studentship), 2013; PhD English (Arts and Humanities Research Council Doctoral Studentship), 2016.
