Professor in High Medieval History, Durham University

My main fields are the history of medieval thought, and the making of medieval theology. I have written on Anselm of Canterbury, monastic learning in the period, especially on notions of economy, and most recent on Robert Grosseteste. I am PI on a project with modern scientists as well as medieval specialists to re-edit, translate and explore Grosseteste's scientific works.
