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.
During the academic year 2018-19 I am conducting archival research in London, Tokyo and elsewhere. In previous semesters, I taught classes on U.S. Foreign Relations, Modern Caribbean History and early American History. I have also co-developed and taught 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.
