Biography

I taught early modern / Renaissance literature at the University of Liverpool (2002-06), late medieval literature at the University of Manchester (2006-07) and both medieval and early modern literature at Liverpool Hope University  (2008-13) prior to joining UEA in 2013. I am a member of the Society for Renaissance Studies (SRS) and editor of the SRS Bulletin, a member of the New Chaucer Society, and a member of the Boydell and Brewer Chaucer Studies series Editorial Board. My research interests are in late medieval and early modern poetry, with a particular emphasis on Anglo-Italian literary and cultural interrelationships. Get in touch if you are interested in Chaucer, the tre corone (Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio), Sir Thomas Wyatt, the fifteenth-century poet John Lydgate, or the sixteenth-century satirist Pietro Aretino, whose biography I am writing.
