I specialize in Old and Middle English language and literature. My book project, Saints’ Lives and Secular Law in England, 850–1300, examines the depiction of secular law in Old English, Anglo-Norman, and early Middle English hagiography.
I am currently a lecturer at La Salle University where I teach research writing. I have taught History of the English language at Holy Family University and spent a year at Franklin & Marshall College teaching courses on medieval literature, Beowulf and Old Norse sagas, and narrative moral literature from late Antiquity to the late Middle Ages.
I have recently launched a website/digital humanities project—The Digital South English Legendary. The project is in its infancy, but the ultimate goal is to edit the South English Legendary and present it in such a way that users will be able to view multiple versions of a single text at the same time.
