Director of Studies

Lucy joined ASE in January 2012, having taught for many years in British universities. After graduation (winning a national prize for the ‘Best Undergraduate Dissertation’ in the UK), she went on to do post-graduate work and then to lecture, gaining a British Academy post-doctoral fellowship along the way. Before moving to Bath, Lucy was the Director of the Centre of East Anglian Studies and she is a Visiting Scholar in History at Franklin & Marshall College. Her research specialism is early medieval history, specifically the Anglo-Saxons, The Vikings, the Norman Conquest and Domesday Book and she teaches on these subjects for ASE. As the Director of Studies, Lucy has primary responsibility for all things academic at ASE. She is also the Programme’s Title IX Coordinator.

When not working, Lucy enjoys walking, baking, doing up her eighteenth-century farmhouse, and playing with her Labrador/Retriever dog. She and her partner also look after puppies for a national charity, ‘Guide Dogs’.
