Research Interests

I am an early medieval art historian. My areas of interest are the world of Late Antiquity and that of the Anglo-Saxon and other Germanic people.

I specialise in Insular Art and the iconography of early Anglo-Saxon coinage.  In addition to further art historical contributions to numismatics and interdisciplinary methodological questions, I am currently working on the exegesis of imagined sacred landscapes through the sense of smell.

I am also an Honorary Research Associate at ASNAC, an Associate member of the Coins and Medals Department, Fitzwilliam Museum, and a regular contributor to the international Lexicon Iconographicum Numismaticae project.

I am the Director of Studies for History of Art for St Edmund's, Lucy Cavendish, Fitzwilliam, Wolfson and Selwyn College.
