Research overview

My main research interests are in Older Scots literature, later Middle English literature, medieval romance, and textual editing. I am currently the Editorial Secretary for the Scottish Text Society, for whom I  edited Shorter Scottish Medieval Romances in 2013: I have also produced scholarly editions for TEAMS (Six Scottish Courtly and Chivalric Poems including Lyndsay's Squyer Meldrum, co-ed. with Emily Wingfield, 2018)  and the Early English Text Society (Ipomadon, 2001). Editing aside, I have published books and articles on Older Scots literature, medieval romance and Chaucer, and was a Fulbright research fellow at the University of Rochester, NY, in 2016. I am a Trustee of the Scottish Medievalists, and a series co-editor for Boydell & Brewer's 'Studies in Medieval Romance'.
