Long 18th-Century Literature and Culture
I joined the University of Leeds as University Academic Fellow in Textual Studies and Digital Editing in 2016. Previously, I was an ARC Discovery Early Career Research Fellow and Assistant Professor of English at the University of Western Australia (2013–16). Before that, I held fellowships in Canada and the United Kingdom. My work focuses on early modern English literature, and in particular on the drama of Shakespeare and his predecessors and contemporaries. I am coordinating editor of Digital Renaissance Editions, and co-editor of Shakespeare, the journal of the British Shakespeare Association. My research agenda is split between three complementary elements: textual studies, computational stylistics, and literary and cultural history.
