My main fields of teaching and research include medieval manuscript studies and ancient and medieval philosophy and science. Within manuscript studies I teach codicology, textual criticism, Latin book hand palaeography, and script development. I study the cognitive aspects of the medieval manuscript folio layout, connected with my research into visual thinking. I examine the nature and role of diagrams and other visual elements and the visualising of philosophical and scientific concepts in medieval manuscripts. I have taught at and organised Latin and Greek Codicology and Palaeography Summer Schools.
