- About Me
I am Senior Lecturer in the Department of History at Keele University, and an economic and social historian of Britain and the Atlantic World. My research explores the ways in which wars and other political conflict affected trade routes and international commerce, primarily examining the construction of commercial networks and the interaction between early modern economies and societies.
I currently hold an AHRC Leadership Fellows grant (2018-2020) entitled Business News in the Atlantic World, 1620-1763. This project explores the information used by early modern merchants to make decisions about their business and will culminate in, among other things, my second monograph. I am also working on a full-length transcription of The Letter-book of Thomas Baret, 1672-1677, to be published by the Norfolk Record Society in 2020.
