I am a medievalist specialising in early medieval material and textual culture across the Insular world. Much of my research centres around live encounters and unfolding narratives that occur when engaging with 3D textual objects. I am particularly interested in bringing user experience (UX) theory to historical artefacts in order to elucidate design choices and interactions with(in) a mise-en-système. Publications include 'St Cuthbert’s Coffin: Devotion in Runic and Roman Lettering’, The Manchester Historian 38 (2021) and a forthcoming article exploring monstrosity in the Marvels of the East.
