I completed my MPhil in 2012 and my PhD in 2016, as a two-time Gates recipient. My thesis, entitled "Medicine and Society in Anglo-Saxon England: The Social and Practical Context of Bald’s Leechbook and the Lacnunga," focused on socio-economic factors affecting access to medical knowledge and treatment in early medieval England. A secondary focus of my research was Old English terminology for precious stones, particularly garnet.
Since receiving my PhD, I have been working professionally as an editor of an architecture magazine. I am also the founding editor of For All the Fish, a new online magazine on sustainable food.
