Research

My teaching and research focuses on the poetry and prose of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England. I’m especially interested in early modern women’s writing, food studies (including recipe books), and ecocriticism. My book, Women, Food Exchange, and Governance in Early Modern England was published by Palgrave in 2016. I also teach and do creative writing, and have published two poetry chapbooks: Elegies and Pilgrimage.

I am happy to supervise graduate students working within the field of early modern non-dramatic literature, and welcome the opportunity to supervise undergraduate creative writing theses (poetry).
