I am a second-year doctoral candidate based in the History and Art History departments at the University of Exeter, working under the supervision of Professor James Clark and Professor Fabrizio Nevola. My current research project centres on the art and visual culture of the late medieval parish church, with a particular focus on the medium of stained glass.

In 2017 I completed a Master's degree in History at the University of Exeter. My dissertation, supervised by Professor James Clark, compared the imagery of surviving rood screens in the counties of Devon and Norfolk and received a distinction. Previous to this, I graduated from King's College London with a Bachelor's degree in History, where I specialised in pre-Reformation and Early Modern religion.
