I am a historian of the Early Middle Ages interested in ethnic identity, religious conversion, and comparative approaches. I have just published my first book, Heirs of the Vikings: History and Identity in Normandy and England, c. 950 – c. 1015 (YMP, 2018), and recently co-curated Imagining the Divine: Art and the Rise of World Religions at the Ashmolean Museum.
