About Me

Alexandra is a PhD candidate in the history department at William & Mary. She earned an MA in British Art History and Visual Culture from the University of Victoria (Canada) in 2016 as well as an MA in History from William & Mary in 2018. Before returning to graduate school, Alexandra worked in curatorial and educational roles for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and as a university administrator.

Alexandra’s research focuses on the social lives of visual and material culture in the British Atlantic in the long 18th century. She is currently working on her dissertation, provisionally titled “The Social Life of Time: Clocks, Watches, and Consumption in the Anglo-Atlantic World.” Alexandra is also interested in digital humanities, and is currently working on a digital project using the inventories of Carlton House as part of her ongoing work with the Georgian Papers Programme.
