I am a historian of modern Britain and a PhD candidate at Columbia University. My dissertation is a comprehensive history of coeducation in British universities between 1860 and 1948, and of how coeducation might help us to understand changes in gender relations more widely in Britain during that period. I have previously published articles on gender and classical education in nineteenth-century Oxford and on the intellectual history of male homosexuality. I am a committed teacher, and at Columbia have taught modern British and European history and US intellectual history and supervised senior theses. I am a member of the New York–Cambridge Training Collaboration in Twentieth-Century British History. In academic year 2017-18 I am living in Cambridge while I conduct dissertation research in university archives across the UK.
I try also to be a person with an identity beyond my academic work (it’s not always easy), and I enjoy cooking, hiking, making music, watching television (the novel of our time) and spending time with friends and family.
On the “Blog” tab, you will find a diary of sorts about reading, thinking, and living that I have kept for almost a decade, since my first year of university. These days, it is updated sporadically.
