My research considers the role of intoxicants in early modern England, with a specific focus on how spirits informed notions of social and occupational identity. My current research concerns the influence of sugar on alcohol production and consumption in England, c. 1650-1750. More broadly, I am interested in consumption, work, and identity in the early modern Atlantic world.
Before arriving at the University of Bristol, I completed my BA Hons. at Durham University and my MRes History at Birkbeck, University of London.
