I am a medievalist, Latinist, and legal historian.

I grew up in Toronto and studied classical and medieval languages there before moving to Trinity College, Cambridge for a master’s and doctorate in medieval legal history. After leaving Cambridge, I worked at Oxford, largely on English medieval manuscript provenance. Since then I have been a research fellow at the Institut de recherche et d’histoire des textes, Paris (part of the CNRS).
