I am an environmental and social historian of early modern England, with a particular interest in the history of water. I am a Lecturer in Early Modern History at the University of Manchester. Previously, I was the Eileen Power Economic History Society Junior Research Fellow at the Institute of Historical Research, at the School of Advanced Study, University of London. I held this post jointly at the IHR and the University of Exeter.
I completed my doctoral studies at the University of Warwick. My PhD thesis explored the social, cultural and political impact of flooding in early modern England. I was supervised by Prof. Beat Kümin and kindly funded by the Wolfson Foundation.
I use ORCiD to document my publications, which you can see below.
