I completed my Bachelor’s degree at LSE, and did my Masters under the auspices of the Europaeum, studying at Leiden, the Sorbonne, and Oxford. I returned to LSE to complete my PhD, which is titled The Whig Idea of Europe, 1685-1705. The thesis discussed how the later seventeenth century Whigs thought of Europe, and how they used that idea in their political practice. I study how this idea intersected with the Whigs’ broader understanding of political economy, geo-strategy, and identity.
I am now working more broadly on the political culture of early modern England.
