About Me

I am a Marie Curie Cofund Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study, Warwick University.

I am a specialist of early modern literature, culture and history. I am interested in the idea and history of error during this period. My first book explored this in Shakespeare and I am currently working on a second book on error in the history of science and the seventeenth century.
