I research and teach British literature of the eighteenth century and Romantic period. My monograph, Sympathy and India in British Literature 1770-1830 (Palgrave Macmillan), was published in 2011, and I am currently writin a cultural history of charity in the eighteenth century. This builds on experience I acquired as Parliamentary Manager at the Charity Commission for England and Wales before joining Exeter in 2013.

I hold a PhD from the University of Cambridge and have studied at the University of Durham, Trinity College, Cambridge, and Yale University. I have held numerous fellowships (most recently at Yale’s Lewis Walpole Library and the School of Advanced Studies in English, University of Jadavpur) and speak regularly at conferences, seminars and public events. Since 2015, I have been a member of the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Peer Review College.
