Teaching and Research Interests

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 am currently preparing a monograph on the subject. 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 technical manager of the AHRC funded Universal Short Title Catalogue project. Previous to this position, I worked as a research assistant on a Leverhulme sponsored project to catalogue early mathematical editions printed in Europe before 1600 and as a research assistant on a Wellcome Trust sponsored project to catalogue medical books in Northern Europe.  In addition, I have provided consulting on a catalogue of British Geological editions printed before 1900.
