I am currently working as a research assistant at the Cologne based project “Edition of the Frankish Capitularies”. My main research interest is the manuscript culture of the Early Middle Ages and especially the manuscripts of Roman law. Futhermore I am very interested in palaeography, particularly in Tironian notes.
