My research intends to increase expanding our understanding of early modern women’s cryptological practices with the intention of combating the gendered biases prevalent in scholarly archives by developing approaches designed specifically for unearthing the female presence in early modern materials. I hold a BA in English with a minor in Greek and Roman Studies from the University of Victoria, and an MA in Early Modern English Text and Transmission from King's College London.
