My main research interests are in early modern literature and culture - Shakespeare, the literature of the 'long 1590s' and the relationship between the theatre and royal iconography.
I am currently working on a monograph on the Elizabethan dramatist and poet George Peele, and I am also co-editor of the peer reviewed e-journal Early Modern Literary Studies. I am also interested in modern drama and in Shakespeare in performance.
