I joined Queen Mary as a full-time member of staff in 2011, having previously held part-time teaching posts at both Queen Mary and University College London. I gained my BA and my PhD from UCL, and my MSc from the Institute for the Study of the Americas (University of London). 


Research Interests:

My research focuses on the relationship between Americans and their government in the early United States. My first book, Era of Experimentation: American Political Practices in the Early Republic (link is external), explores the diversity of American democracy during this formative period for the young nation.

My new project is a study of US policymaking, specifically federal tariff policy, between the War of 1812 and the Civil War.
