About Me

Currently a Ph.D. Candidate at City, University of London with a focus on the handling of space in the Privy Lodgings of the Stuarts.

I have ten years of experience in the Heritage Sector including work at National Trust’s Ham House and with the Royal Collection Trust at Windsor Castle, two properties where seventeenth-century apartments survive.

I celebrate multi-culturalism and female agency which were present in England in the seventeenth century.
