Welcome! I currently hold the chair for Medieval English Literature and Historical Linguistics at the University of Düsseldorf and I hope that this website will give you an insight into my current projects.

My research combines the material with the ephemeral by using digital analysis and visualisation techniques to create new perspectives on medieval manuscript culture. My secondary research interests include the adaptation histories of widespread medieval texts such as romances and the role of affective narratives in generating identity in medieval and twenty-first century encounters with artefacts of the dead.
