Research interests

I am both a bibliographer and book historian. I am particularly interested in the ways in which printed texts were produced and circulated, and the economics of the early modern English book trade as well as the critical editing of literary and non-literary works from that period. My PhD was on the history of the Stationers' Company, and I have written several articles on the Company's activities. With Dr Giles Bergel, I am working on a digital project to make the Stationers' Register searchable.
