He has published a book on the literary depiction of marriage in this period; and a critical edition of one of the best-loved of all Middle English texts - 'The Owl and the Nightingale' - as well as a number of articles in academic journals and edited volumes. He teaches 'Medieval to Renaissance' topics (from Old English to Shakespeare).
