I am currently a Lecturer in Early Modern British History at The University of Sheffield.
I completed my PhD in History at The University of Sheffield in 2020. My thesis explored the English merchants who financed the development of sugar plantations and African slavery on the Caribbean island of Barbados during the mid-seventeenth century. My project was supervised by Prof. Mike Braddick and fully funded by an AHRC White Rose Competition Scholarship.
Because of my expertise in the history of British slavery and colonialism I have been hired to work as a consultant on a variety of public-facing research projects. I am therefore experienced in working with both major British institutions and community partners to communicate research on historical slavery to a public audience, and am in the process of developing an extensive portfolio of public engagement and impact activities.
My CV is available upon request.
I am a member of the Royal Historical Society, the Society for Renaissance Studies, and the Forum on Early Modern Empires and Global Interaction (FEEGI).
