I joined UEA in 2014. I took my first degree in History at Trinity College, Cambridge, before winning a Henry Fellowship to Harvard. I returned to Cambridge for my doctoral thesis on cultural politics in France c. 1770-1810 (supervised by Prof. Tim Blanning) for which I spent a year in Paris as a Pensionnaire étranger at the École normale supérieure, Ulm. I was subsequently a Junior Research Fellow at Christ Church, Oxford, and Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at Queen Mary University of London.

My research and teaching (described in my research and teaching tabs) focus on eighteenth-and nineteenth-century France. However, my interests are eclectic: I have published on twentieth-century Italian intellectual history and on a sixteenth-century Paris fountain, lectured on subjects ranging from seventeenth-century absolutism to interwar eugenics and led MA seminars on Renaissance Paris and Post-war French colonial politics alike.
