My research focuses on Romantic period manuscript practices, coterie productions of literature, travel writing and women's medical literature. I have lectured on eighteenth-century and Romantic literature at several universities in the US and UK and been awarded residential research fellowships at Yale's Lewis Walpole Library, the Wordsworth Trust and Chawton House Library. I am currently a Research Associate on the AHRC-funded ‘Davy Notebooks Project’ at Lancaster University.
I am working on my first monograph, entitled Manuscript Geograpies: Women Writers and Transnational Networks: 1790-1840. My research has appeared in European Romantic Review. I have articles forthcoming in Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies and Studies in Romanticism, as well as a chapter in The Palgrave Handbook of Women and Science since 1660, of which I am also Co-editor.
I was awarded a Wellcome Trust/ Birkbeck, University of London ISSF Postdoctoral Extension Fellowship in the Medical Humanities in 2018-2019. I convened a symposium entitled ‘A Species of Knowledge’: Women and Medicine 1750-1850' at Birkbeck, University of London in April 2019. My talk from the event, on the medical career of Irish Romantic author Margaret Mason, Lady Mount Cashell, is available online.
In November 2015, I co-convened ‘Silence in the Archives: Censorship and Suppression in Women’s Life Writing in the Long Nineteenth Century’, an interdisciplinary conference at Wolfson College, Oxford. In 2018, I guest edited a special issue of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century based on the conference proceedings, which is available open access.
