Academic Profile

BA (Hons) History, University of Sussex, 2011.


I am a first-year doctoral candidate working under the supervision of Dr Jonathan Davies. My PhD project investigates the involvement of women in criminal gangs during the early modern period in England (predominantly focusing on London, Surrey, Sussex and Kent) c.1500-1800.

My research interests extend to all aspects of violence and crime in early modern Europe, typically using gender as an analytical approach.

I am also working as a Research Assistant on the AHRC Isaac Newton Project (University of Sussex) transcribing and publishing Newton's original theological manuscripts. I am currently working on a document which includes drafts of the 'Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica' and the 'Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms'.
