About Me

My current research is focused on London 1461-1521, the political interplay between the entities of Crown and Capital. I am also writing a comparison of the political engagement of Paris and London and their agency in political change in the late fifteenth century. I also have an interest in the pre-reformation church and the fifteenth century English episcopal bench.

I have taught a variety of subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate level with the chronological span of 1000-1688 at a variety of British Universities.

Always well presented, well-spoken and articulate, I am a seasoned lecturer and reasonably entertaining speaker.
