- About Me
I am in the final year of my PhD at the University of Tasmania. My thesis looks at the development of a particularly harmful English prison system in the early to mid nineteenth century and its impact on the health of Australian convicts.
Throughout my PhD I have taught at a tertiary level. Most recently I co-conveyed a third year cultural heritage and history unit.
My research interests include historical interpretation, public-facing history, colonialism, and histories of imprisonment and health.
After completing my BA (Hons) at the University of Tasmania, I undertook an MA in History at the Australian National University. I commenced my PhD in 2018 and intend to submit in 2021.
My career ambition is to work in a research-adjacent space, namely the academic or heritage sectors. If the former, I am passionate about managing large-scale projects and developing forward-looking, role-specific pedagogies. If the latter, I am particularly interested in research and interpretation that responds to evolving ideas on connecting with and preserving the past in meaningful ways.
