My research concentrates on the history, culture and language of the Anglo-Saxons. My particular fields of interest are old age, proverbs, Cnut the Great and the adaptation of early medieval material in modern culture (e.g. J.R.R. Tolkien, Game of Thrones and The Last Kingdom). In the menu on the left, you can find an overview of my publications.
In addition, I am the current managing editor of Neophilologus, the reviews editor for English Studies and a member of the editorial boards of Amsterdamer Beiträge zur älteren Germanistik and Madoc. Tijdschrift over de Middeleeuwen.
