I have been mainly interested in medieval and early modern English manuscripts and editing and palaeography and have taught these subjects in North America and the UK. For some years I was Co-Editor of English Manuscript Studies, 1100-1700 and am currently Deputy Editor of The Book Collector and on the Editorial Boards of Manuscripta and Florilegium and on the council of the Scottish Text Society and the Advisory Board of Middle English Texts (Heidelberg). My current research includes a new critical edition of the works of Chaucer (with Julia Boffey, for Cambridge University Press) and a study of the post-medieval buying and selling of Middle English manuscripts. I have taught introductory and advanced Middle English palaeography for LIPS.
