I come to Aberdeen from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States. I have a keen interest in early medieval Norse and Insular narrative literature. I have previously studied at Penn State University, obtaining my BA in Medieval Studies with a minor in English and at the University of Glasgow where I completed an MLitt in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, focusing on the supernatural within Icelandic sagas. I began my PhD at the Centre for Scandinavian Studies in 2013. My PhD project focuses on the Giants within Old Norse mythology, sagas, þættir and skaldic poetry.
