After attending Tregaron Comprehensive school in mid-Wales, I studied English Literature at King's College, Cambridge, specialising in Renaissance Literature, early modern theological writing and Critical Theory. These interests were sharpened during a British Academy funded MA at the University of Sussex, where I completed a thesis on Francis Bacon's work and the publications of the Royal Society.
I stayed at Sussex to complete my AHRC-funded doctorate and settled on 16th century cultures of print and epistemology as my key subjects. I taught a range of courses (from 'Creative Writing' to 'Hegel and Historiography') at Sussex before moving to the University of Leeds in 2007, to become a Teaching Fellow in Early Modern History.
At Leeds, I have become involved in key Learning & Teaching initiatives exploring Curriculum Design, Employability and the Student Experience, as well as furthering my research and teaching in Early Modern History.
