Areas of Interest

Old English; Old Norse; Old Irish; Myth Studies


My interests lie primarily in the Old English, Old Irish, and Old Norse languages and literatures. I primarily study the region known as the North Sea cultural sphere and its interchanging influences. I am particularly interested in non-canonical Anglo-Saxon poetry and Biblical/apocryphal poetry.

I am also interested in mythic studies, particularly bridging between cultural space and time.
