Biography

 

I joined the Department of History here at Manchester in September 2012 as Leverhulme Early Career Fellow.  Before working as a lecturer in medieval and early modern history at the University of Liverpool (2011-12), I completed my PhD at the University of Glasgow and a Masters in Medieval Studies at University College London.  My doctoral thesis was a biographical study of Geoffrey, count of Anjou and duke of Normandy (1129-51), which provides the first modern account of his career and which compiled a calendar of his 180 known acts as count and duke.  My postdoctoral work continues and builds upon this research, using Anjou as a central case study in a project investigating the nature of political culture and non-royal power and authority. I am currently writing my first monograph, provisionally entitled Power and Political Culture in Twelfth-Century Western France.
