My research looks at the ways in which empire impacted upon masculinity  at the end of the eighteenth and beginning of the nineteenth centuries. My thesis, 'Masculinity, Empire, Identity: John Shore, Lord Teignmounth 1751-1834' uses one man and his family as a case study. The thesis considers the ways in which this high status man managed masculinity within a burgeoning matrix of nation, race and class. It considers the ways that shifting notions of power within the British and Mughal worlds contested Shore's masculinity in Britain and Bengal.
 
More generally, I am interested in the social and cultural history of the early modern British empire, in particular the ways in which empire reconfigured British culture up to the present day. My wider interests include the interdisciplinary field of postcolonial studies and biographies as a methodology for historical analysis.

I hold a BSc in Psychology (2001) from the Open University and an MA in History (2014) from the University of Bristol.
