Personal statement

I'm a senior lecturer in English literature, specialising in eighteenth-century literature and digital humanities. I have a particular expertise in the eighteenth-century novel, especially in the works of Daniel Defoe.

My work on the intersection of the digital and eighteenth-century print culture focuses on digital editing and databases. I am particularly interested in the issues of textual and bibliographic authority, encoding, preservation, access, and re-usability of eighteenth-century material in online editions, archives and databases.

  • BA University of Leeds.

Professional qualifications
