I am currently place-name researcher at the University of East Anglia on an the project 'Lordship and landscape in East Anglia CE 400-800', a project funded by the Leverhulme Trust investigating early medieval East Anglia. I am exploring the place-name evidence for early medieval settlement, infrastructure, land-use and power structures across East Anglia, and carrying out a detailed study of minor place-names in the parish of Rendlesham.
From November 2014 until October 2017, I was Research Fellow on 'Travel and Communication in Anglo-Saxon England', a three-year project funded by the Leverhulme Trust. I contributed place-name and linguistic expertise to the project, an interdisciplinary and multi-institutional project investigating overland and riverine travel in Anglo-Saxon England using textual, landscape archaeological, and place-name evidence. Combining archaeological and linguistic expertise, we were able both to identify previously unknown routes and to provide clearer definitions of their characteristics. Findings are being published as a monograph jointly authored with other project members, and as articles in peer-reviewed journals.
