Professional biography

I completed my BA (English and History) and MA (History) at Queen's University Belfast, where I developed my interest in eighteenth-century European History and visual culture. I received a PhD in Modern History from the University of St Andrews in 2021 for a thesis entitled '"Those Scandalous Prints": Caricatures of the Elite in France and Britain, c.1740-1795.' I joined the Open University as an Associate Lecturer in History in 2021.

My current research focusses on the British monarchy and public opinion in the eighteenth century. I have published two articles in peer-reviewed journals and am currently working on my first monograph: a biography of Queen Charlotte which will be published by Routledge.

Research interests

My research focusses on public opinion, the press, and social elites in eighteenth-century Europe. My work often explores the significance of visual culture, as well as issues of identity including national and gender identity.

Teaching interests

I currently teach on A113 'Revolutions', A223 'Early Modern Europe: society and culture, 1500–1780', A225 'The British Isles and the modern world, 1789–1914', and A328 'Empires: power, resistance, legacies.'
