Research interests

My primary area of interest is the political, social and cultural history of early modern England. My thesis is concerned with the culture of the Tudor political elite, and how this culture can help us better understand the politics of the period. The core of this study is a prosopographical analysis of all Tudor privy councillors between 1485 and 1603.

I also have a parallel interest in the Digital Humanities. The prosopographical element of my research required the construction of a large relational database which contains all the biographical information of each privy councillor. This database has allowed me to identify trends and patterns across the entire group and across the whole period. I am interested in how digital tools and methodologies can be used to facilitate new topics and approaches in the humanities.  

Outside of my thesis I have an interest in heritage and historical architecture. I am undertaking a partnership with the National Trust that looks at the architectural remains of Tudor manor houses, specifically converted monasteries. Also, I am exploring how history and heritage is marketed and consumed by the general public.
