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.

My research interests include historical interpretation, public-facing history, colonialism, women’s history, 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 the heritage sector, particularly in an interpretative and research role where I can connect the public to stories of their past.
