I am interested in the undergraduate student experience at university. I was a resident tutor in an undergraduate hall of residence at Nottingham for over two years.
I was also Deputy Editor of the Midlands Historical Review, a student-led, interdisciplinary online journal, between October 2019 and March 2021.
I am a third-year part-time PhD student of early modern women's history at the University of Nottingham. My research considers the role of social connections in the political engagement of mid-Tudor noblewomen.
I focus on eight elite aristocratic women of the 1510s generation: Queen Katherine Parr; the Lady Mary Tudor, later Mary I; Mary Howard, duchess of Richmond; Anne Stanhope, duchess of Somerset; Frances Brandon, duchess of Suffolk; Katherine Willoughby, duchess of Suffolk; Jane Guildford, duchess of Northumberland; and Margaret Douglas, countess of Lennox. I consider the interplay between their social connections, authority in the household, political influence, and religious and scholarly patronage.

I studied my Masters at the University of Leeds, writing my dissertation on Frances Brandon, duchess of Suffolk, situating her in the context of elite scholarly evangelical women at court. My undergraduate degree was in Western Australia, where my Honours thesis focused on the immigration of British and Irish domestic servants to 1850s and 1890s colonial Western Australia.
