I'm a historian of the revolutionary United States.
My first book, Gentlemen Revolutionaries: Power and Justice in the New American Republic, was published by Princeton University Press this summer. Right now, I'm working on credit and deception in the transatlantic financial market of the late eighteenth century, and I'm writing a biography of revolutionary-era hostess and traveler Angelica Schuyler Church.
I teach colonial British North America and the United States to 1890, at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. Birmingham is one of the UK's foremost civic research universities, known as red-bricks. It also hosts the country's top programme in American & Canadian Studies.
Before coming to Birmingham in September 2016, I was the Sir Christopher Cox Junior Fellow at New College, Oxford. I completed my doctoral work at St Hugh's College and the Rothermere American Institute, Oxford, in 2014.
