Director of Admissions (AHSS)
PhD (History, Kent)
My research focuses on popular politics and religion in early modern Britain. My doctoral research focused on the impact of the religious change on provincial urban political culture, and subsequently I have published on a range of topics during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
I joined Murray Edwards in 2022 having spent two years supervising and working in admissions at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. I am currently a Teaching Assistant on the Cambridge Foundation Year Programme and a Director of Studies for the Foundation Year at Lucy Cavendish. Before coming to Cambridge, I taught History in a range of settings, including the University of Kent, University of East Anglia, and Queen Mary University of London.
Alongside teaching and research, I am passionate about widening access to Higher Education and have worked in various roles in Cambridge and elsewhere that have looked to dismantle systemic barriers to university education.
