In 2022 I joined the department as a Research Associate on the CHANSE funded European wide project, Researching Europe, Digitalisation, and Conspiracy Theories (led by Professor Clare Birchall).
I received an MA in History at the University of St Andrews, after which I followed a career in web design and development for a variety of international private sector organisations. I returned to academia joining the History department at Kings College, London, completing a Masters in Research and then recently submitting a PhD thesis entitled ‘Debating the US Constitution: A computational approach to the structure and geography of the ratification debate’.

Expertise and public engagement
I have presented papers at a number of conferences and seminars, including the British Group of Early American Historians and the Digital History Seminar at the Institute of Historical Research and was a member of the ‘Computational Archive Science’ workshop held at The National Archives in 2019. In support of my PhD thesis, I developed an associated website for sharing and exploring the research data outputs.
