About Me

I am the Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the European Research Council-funded project ‘Men, Women and Care: The gendering of formal and informal caregiving in interwar Britain’ at the University of Leeds. My research investigates the lives of disabled British ex-servicemen from the First World War who emigrated from Britain while in receipt of British pensions. This project is developing into a history of empire, migration, disability, intimacy and dislocation.

I am also developing my PhD thesis (2017, University of Adelaide) for publication. It examined the Australian Army Medical Corps in the First World War and analysed the ways in which imperial, military, medical and gender hierarchies shaped the provision of medical care to Australian soldiers.
