Personal profile

I have studied History for over a decade at Royal Holloway allowing my fascination with everything Victorian to flourish. I first took an undergraduate degree and continued my studies by researching the impact of crime on social and cultural interactions in the nineteenth century. I have received various scholarships and prizes throughout my studies including the Founders scholarship (2007-2010), Masters 3+1 scholarship (2010-11), Santander Scholarship for excellence (Feb. 2011), Olwen Hufton Prize for the best performance in the field of gender and women's history (Nov. 2011) and an AHRC grant (2011-2014).

However, I have moved away from higher education and am now a full-time tutor. Using my experiences of teaching at RHUL and the professional qualification I gained I have established a tutoring company where I teach History, Politics, Geography, Maths and Science. Many of my students have gone onto university and several have followed my footsteps to RHUL.

Research interests

My research interests focus on Victorian Britain and the formation of social identities. This is often through the lens of criminality due the rich bed of information criminal trials can offer. 

Broadly, I am interested in the impact of crime on gender, class, family and the home in the nineteenth century. My most recent thesis assessed how crime disrupted the home using stealing from master, poaching and arson as three test cases. 

I have also worked extensively on infanticide using the Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum records to reveal attitudes towards mothers and fathers, childbirth and notions of insanity in Victorian Britain.

Teaching

Previously a seminar leader on the masters taught program HS5455 Studying and Communicating the Past revieiwing different types of source material and how historians interact with them. I have also taught HS2213 British History 1914-1973 focussing on social and political changes in the period. 

I have completed the programme in Skills of Teaching to Inspire Learning (inSTIL) at RHUL in 2013 which is accredited by the Higher Education Academy.
