Academic background

I read French and German at Somerville College and discovered a love for medieval studies. I qualified as a teacher following my BA and then returned to Somerville for my MSt. I have just finished my DPhil at St Anne’s in medieval French and German, looking at ‘Late Medieval Marian Lyric in Urban Spaces: The Poetry of the Puy and Meistergesang, 1388-1525’ so am delighted to continue my association with the college now as Stipendiary Lecturer. Before this post, I was Stipendiary Lecturer in German at Somerville



– German Prelims:

– Papers II, III, IV

– German FHS

– Papers II, VI, VIII, and IX

I also teach the late lyric option for French FHS VI.


I am co-teaching the MSt History of the Book Method Option with Henrike Lähnemann.
