I am an Assistant Professor of Medieval Latin at the Centre for Medieval Studies in the University of Toronto. My main focus is on late antique and early medieval Latin literature, and on the history of the book between c. 300 and 800 CE. Previously, I was a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Classical, Near Eastern, and Religious Studies at UBC, a post-doc in the Department of Classical Studies at the University of Waterloo, and a curator in the Ancient, Medieval, and Early Modern Manuscripts section of the British Library. I received my Ph.D in Classics from the University of Toronto, where I wrote a dissertation entitled “Geography and space in the poetry of Prudentius”. Before that, I studied for my undergraduate degree at Trinity College Dublin.
