About Me

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of History at the University of Sydney. I have previously held a 2018-2019 Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarship at New York University and an Alice Stone Blackwell Dissertation Grant at the Schlesinger Library at Harvard University.

My dissertation project explores attempts by female journalists in the United States to create a more inclusive media landscape in the post-World War II years through feminist and labour activism, and legal strategies.

I have been published in The Washington Post, The Conversation, Australian Book Review and History Today.
