Biography

I studied English Literature at the University of Worcester (2013-2016), followed by an MRes in Early Modern Studies (2016-2017). Both my undergraduate and MRes dissertations explored issues surrounding sexuality, identity, and the body in Restoration literature. Alongside my current research, I also work as a freelance writer, and my wider research interests include queer studies, disease, medical history, and the history of disability.
