I came to Stirling in 2011, after two years as a lecturer in early modern literature at Sussex. Before that I was Research Associate on The Oxford Francis Bacon project at the University of Cambridge (2005-2008), and Senior Research Associate on the AHRC-funded Scriptorium: Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts Online project at the Faculty of English in Cambridge (2008-2009) and Preceptor in English at Corpus Christi College.

My research focuses on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century literature and culture, with particular interests in antiquarianism, the works of Francis Bacon, manuscript and textual studies, and history of the book. My first book, In Defiance of Time: Antiquarian Writing in Early Modern England, was published by Oxford University Press in 2010. I am also on the editorial board and one of the volume editors of The Oxford Francis Bacon: with Dr Richard Serjeantson (University of Cambridge) I am editing Volume III: Earlier Jacobean Writings 1603-1613, also for Oxford University Press.Other recent publications include articles on Bacon's notebooks, on manuscript and commonplace culture, and on etymology. Current projects include a special issue of Renaissance Studies, co-edited with Dr Abigail Shinn of the University of York, on encyclopaedism and copiousness in early modern England, and essays on Bacon's household and chaplains, on mercantile practice and culture, and on the Scottish Neo-Latin poet John Johnston. I am also at work on my second monograph project, which is provisionally titled 'Manuscripts, Miscellanies, and the Organisation of Knowledge in Early Modern England'.
