Research interests

My research explores the role of intoxicants in early modern England, with a specific focus on how distilled spirits informed ideas about the self and society over the course of this period. More broadly, I am interested in consumption, work, and identity in the early modern Atlantic world, c. 1600 - 1800. 


Before arriving at the University of Bristol, I completed my BA Hons. at Durham University and my MRes History at Birkbeck, University of London.


I am the Co-Convenor and Founder of Labour, Leisure, and Life in Early Modern England, a new seminar series dedicated to sharing and supporting the work of PGRs and ECRs from across the field.


My research is supported by the South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership.
