I am a research associate on the AHRC funded Thomas Nashe project, which will lead to the publication of Nashe’s collected works, as well as various events to celebrate his writing. For more on the project, you can go to:
BA in English Literature, Jesus College, Oxford

Joint PhD from the University of Kent and the Universidade do Porto, as part of the E.U. funded research programme, Text and Event in Early Modern Europe:
My research interests are in the theatre and print culture of the early modern period, focussing especially on how the profession of writing was developing in this period. My PhD was on the posthumous fame of the notorious Italian writer, Pietro Aretino, and I continue to be interested in the way that cultural mediators reshaped the writing and reputations of early modern ‘celebrity’ writers such as Thomas Nashe and Robert Greene.
