I’m coming to the end of the first year of my PhD in History at the University of Northampton, UK. I studied my MA at the University of Warwick and my research interests are mainly in 18th Century British Political History, as well as Gender History and Material Culture studies of the period. I have tutored school children in all aspects of history in summer schools and am passionate about using history to increase engagement in politics. I enjoy illustration and have a very small collection of vintage prints, maps and painting, some of which I’ve bought and sold alongside my own drawings that were inspired by them. Any free time is undoubtedly spent travelling, checking out a museum or two where possible!
