Currently, I am H.M. Queen Margrethe II Distinguished Research Fellow at the Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute of Foreign Languages, University of Iceland, National Museum of Iceland and Museum of National History, Frederiksborg Castle, Denmark, where I work as PI on the "Writing (Hi)stories" project. My research is funded by Carlsberg Foundation.
Previously, I held a position of research fellow at The Arnamagnæan Manuscript Collection, where I worked on a research project examining and XML-TEI cataloging manuscripts in the Accessoria collection.
My doctoral research concerned intertextuality in Norse poetry and prose from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century. My thesis Studies in the transmission history of Hrómundar saga Greipssonar, defended at the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics, University of Copenhagen in 2018, combines text-critical, transmission-historical and material-philological approaches to texts and manuscripts with application of innovative digital tools and methods.
My background lies in broad historical disciplines (history, literature, and linguistics), including an MA in Medieval Icelandic Studies (University of Iceland), MA in Archaeology (University of Wrocław), MA in History (University of Wrocław), BA in History (University of Zielona Góra), and 110 ECTS towards BA in Icelandic language (University of Iceland).
In my research I focus mainly on Old Norse-Icelandic language and literature. My main research interests include manuscript studies, digital scholarly editing, textual criticism and transmission history, and history of historiography.
Manuscript Studies and Material Philology
My main research and teaching interests lie in manuscripts seen as physical artefacts, not exclusively as text bearers. I have experience in cataloguing medieval and post-medieval manuscripts, and I have published articles on material analysis of various manuscripts. Recently I co-edited a collection of essays From Text to Artefact published in Gold Open Access.
Old Norse-Icelandic Language and Literature
Medieval and post-medieval Icelandic language, literature and culture occupy a prominent place in my research. See my recent article on a post-medieval romance saga Ambrósíus saga ok Rósamunda
Application of digital tools and methods in textual and manuscripts studies is one of my main research interests. I have presented my research on network analysis of manuscript context of Old Norse texts, and on new stemmatics during various DH conferences. I published on computer assisted stemmatics.
Textual Scholarship and Transmission History
My doctoral thesis was a material philological and transmission-historical study of the story of Hrómundur from the Middle Ages until the 19th century. I examined the complete transmission history of Hrómundar saga and its adaptations in all known manuscripts. See my publication list for research outputs of this project.
