Senior Lecturer in History, University of Suffolk

I am an interdisciplinary medievalist working at the intersection of history, law, archaeology, and literature, especially on topics like legalism, normativity, punishment, and personhood in Viking-Age Scandinavia and its diaspora.

I have a passion for using innovative and culturally comparative methodologies for researching and teaching the medieval world – including Indigenous Studies, Posthumanist, and Game Studies approaches – with an eye towards fostering richer and more inclusive dialogue about this period and its many connections.
