I am a Research Associate on the Wellcome Trust-funded project, Pharmacosexuality: The Past, Present and Future of Sex on Drugs, working with Alex Dymock and Leah Moyle.

Prior to joining Royal Holloway in May 2018, I was a teaching fellow in modern British and European history at University College London, where I also completed by PhD. In 2016-2017, I was a teaching fellow in modern British history at the University of Birmingham.
