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).


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, 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.
