Her research concerns medicine, literature and culture, particularly the connections between the body and religious experience, as well as medicine and ethics, extending from the Middle Ages to our own period. She is also part of the Umeå Group for Premodern Studies and the Umeå Network for Medical Humanities.

She is currently working on historical projects about migration and health and medical tourism. 

She teaches academic writing, literary theory and methods, medieval literature, as well "Blaming the Body: Ethics, Medicine and Culture in Western Europe"; "Narrating Madness in Literature and Culture"; "Motifs of Madness" and "Literature and Disability."

Before she moved to Sweden, she completed her PhD in English at the University of Cambridge. She also has a master's degree in Medieval and Renaissance Literature also from Cambridge, a master's degree in journalism from Columbia, and a bachelor's degree in English from Trinity College, Dublin.

She welcomes PhD proposals in the areas of medieval and early modern literature; literature and the body; medical humanities; historicism; historical fiction.
