Kevin joined King’s as a teaching fellow in 2016. Kevin’s research interests focus on the emergence of state institutions as technologies of government throughout the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century.
Before joining King’s, Kevin was previously the teaching fellow in Geography in Trinity College Dublin from 2014-2016, where he taught a wide range of subjects across all disciplines of geography. He completed his PhD in 2013 and received a BA in Natural Science, also in TCD.
His research to date focuses on the emergence of national education in the British Empire, using traditional historical methodologies, along with modern quantitative methods such as GIS, to provide a unique perspective on the role of space and social relations in the emergence of state institutions.
Kevin is also a research associate to the ERC funded project ‘NorFish - North Atlantic Fisheries: An Environmental History, 1400-1700’ based at the School of Histories and Humanities in TCD. The project aims to study the environmental history of the North Atlantic, focusing of the impact of the fish revolution 1400-1700.
