I am an environmental and social historian of early modern England, with a particular interest in the history of water. You can read more about my research here, and follow me on twitter here. I am always keen to speak to others working on similar areas.

I studied at Warwick from 2008-2015, latterly taking a PhD with Prof. Beat Kümin. My PhD thesis, titled 'Flooding in early modern England: cultures of coping in Gloucestershire and Lincolnshire' explored the social, cultural and political impact of flooding in early modern England. I was kindly funded by the Wolfson Foundation. I have published on the cultural history of flooding and fires, the Elizabethan religious settlement, and travelling communities and the early modern state.

In September 2016 I began working as a Lecturer in Early Modern History at the University of Manchester. You can read more about my publications and current activities on ORCiD.
