I am a PhD candidate in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge, supervised by Dr Emma Spary and Professor Lauren Kassell. My research looks at the health practices of displaced individuals in the seventeenth century, focusing on five figures who travelled from England to the Continent primarily for reasons of political exile or educational travel. My work engages with the substantial literature on early modern domestic medical practice, seeking to understand what happened to household medicine when the household unit was destabilised.
Prior to undertaking PhD study, I worked in the heritage sector and in academic library services. I received my BA in History from Wolfson College, Cambridge, in 2013, and completed an MA in Historical Research at the University of Sheffield in 2018.
