I have been teaching and researching at Queen’s Belfast since 2005, arriving soon after my postgraduate studies at the University of Cambridge. My main research interests focus upon medieval social and economic history, particularly looking at markets and trade. This led to my first book entitled Medieval market morality: life, law and ethics in the English marketplace, 1200-1500 (Cambridge University Press, 2012), which examined the market culture and practices of medieval England through a variety of literary and legal sources. My most recent projects have looked at topics such as the medieval baker, the culture of shopping and medieval streets, all in an effort to reveal more about everyday life.
