I study the British Empire in the nineteenth century, with a special interest in its relationship with other colonial powers. I am interested in global diplomatic history, but through lenses provided by the histories of technology, capitalism, racism, and migration.
In Fall 2017 I am precepting a course on U.S. Foreign Relations, and co-developing and teaching a MOOC on the global history of capitalism.
Previously, I graduated from the London School of Economics (BSc Government and History, First Class Honours, 2013) and Wolfson College, Cambridge (MPhil Early Modern History, Distinction, 2014). I have also worked in the UK Renewable Energy sector, and maintain a keen interest in environmental issues.
