I am a late medieval historian specialising in the history of women, urban society and the law in England. I completed my PhD at the University of Nottingham in 2015 where I studied and compared women's legal status in different urban courts, exploring the ways in which women engaged in litigation. More broadly, I am interested in everyday life and relationships within urban society, and how legal evidence can be used to explore this.
I am currently working as a researcher on the AHRC-funded project ‘Women Negotiating the Boundaries of Justice’ where I am focussing on women’s access to justice in late medieval England.
I am also working on a book on women and urban justice in late medieval England, as well as studies of women and credit in medieval England and understandings of coverture in local courts.
