Telephone: 01392 726388

I am interested broadly in the economic and social history of eighteenth-century Britain. My research focuses on gender and the social history of debt. I am currently completing a project on Britain's debtors' prisons which investigates themes of downward social mobility, failure and identity amongst the lower middling sort.

I am an advocate for public history and I enjoy collaborating with colleagues in museums and radio. I have consulted for museum exhibitions throughout the UK and I publish in the field of heritage studies.

Office Hours: Monday 4-5pm. Thursday 1.30-2.30pm. Amory 132.
