About me

I am a social and economic historian, specialising in agricultural and economic development, property, and capitalism in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century England.

I am currently the Economic History Society’s Tawney Fellow, based at the Institute of Historical Research and the University of Cambridge. During this fellowship, I’m writing my first monograph, Capitalist farming in eighteenth-century England, as well as developing other publications based on my research on farm size and farm labour using nineteenth-century census data.

I was awarded my PhD from the University of Exeter in March 2019, and from April to August 2019 I was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Gender, Place and Memory research cluster at the University of Hull. I’ve taught at the Universities of Exeter, Bristol, and Cambridge.
