My research principally focuses on French print culture in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, with a particular concern for the output and circulation of religious controversy during that period. I was awarded my PhD in 2013 for a study of Religious Controversy in the Sixteenth Century. Most recently I have begun research on the buying and selling of early modern editions in contemporary booklists and auction catalogues. In addition, I have also conducted various bibliographic investigations into mathematical and medical texts published through Europe in the early modern period.
I am currently Project Manager of the Universal Short Title Catalogue (USTC), a digital bibliography of printed early modern editions. Prior to this position, I worked as technical manager of the USTC, a research assistant on a Leverhulme sponsored project to catalogue early mathematical editions, and as a research assistant on a Wellcome Trust sponsored project to catalogue medical books in Northern Europe
I teach on aspects of material bibliography and digital humanities, covering a broad range of topics and techniques. I am currently senior editor of Book History Online, published by Brill and act as a technical consultant and academic advisor on various digital projects including Early European Books (ProQuest) and Historical Texts (JISC)
Senior Editor, Book History On-line (Brill)
