I received my PhD from the Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin in 2022. I am a first-generation and non-traditional student, active in mentorship and advocate efforts that seek to make higher education equitable for all students who wish to pursue it.
My general research field is the social and cultural history of Modern Britain and its Empire; but more specifically, I focus on class, labor, and gender in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the settler colonies of Australia in the long nineteenth century.
Besides my main teaching fields in the History of Modern Europe, I am also prepared and experienced with subjects in Early Modern Atlantic HIstory (including both US History Surveys), and Public History.
