I’m a Ph.D student at the University of Cambridge, writing a dissertation about the ways in which English-speakers learnt other languages from the 16th to the early 18th century. I am funded by the AHRC and by Emmanuel College, and supervised by Dr. Phil Withington and Dr. William O’Reilly.
I believe that historians have a duty to communicate their research to audiences beyond the academy. I am a co-founder and presenter of the Cambridge PhDcasts, and I’ve been involved in the Cambridge History For Schools programme.
My writing has appeared in the Guardian, the Observer, the Sunday Telegraph, Fire and Knives, The Junket, and elsewhere. If you’re interested to speak to me about writing or speaking, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
In 2013, I was shortlisted for the BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinkers programme.
I’m also a comedy writer and performer. I’ve written for the stage and for radio, and recently I have enjoyed performing academic stand-up at Bright Club in Cambridge and London.
