I am a first-year doctoral candidate based jointly at the University of Exeter and the Università di Pisa. My current focus is the expansion of maritime commerce in early modern Europe, and the political, cultural and legal changes that occurred it its wake.

Before beginning work on my PhD project I studied at the University of Cambridge where I completed a BA in history (first-class honours) and was awarded the Trevelyan History Prize. I then progressed to complete an MPhil in medieval history. My first publication is a contribution to Richard Löwenherz: König, Ritter, Gefangener, a forthcoming volume issued by the Historische Museum der Pfalz, Speyer.

I am supervised by Professor Maria Fusaro (Exeter) and Professor Andrea Addobbati (Pisa).
