I would consider myself to be a social and cultural historian, focusing on elements of the non-conformist body in the late Middle Ages (for example: the aged body, the female body, the disabled body, the sick body and the monstrous body). I also have a background in art history and favour interdisciplinary approaches which combine visual, material and literary evidence.

After graduating from the University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in History, I received the University of Leeds ‘Postgraduate Support Package’, which enabled me to undertake an MA in Medieval Studies at the University’s Institute for Medieval Studies. In April 2015 I was awarded the University of Leeds ‘110 Anniversary Scholarship’, which has allowed me to commence my PhD research.
