I am a second year PhD candidate at the Centre for Medical History. Broadly put, my research interests lie in the histories of occupational health, age, and gender.

My current research examines fatigue and work in post-1945 Britain. With a specific focus on aircrew, my work looks at how and why fatigue became a occupational health issue in the late twentieth century. I am particularly interested in how the relationship between fatigue, productivity, and safety has been used as an industrial bargaining tool.

Before joining Mark Jackson's 'Lifestyle, Health and Disease' project in September 2014, I completed a BA in History and Ancient History at Exeter University in 2011 and then an MSc in the History of Science, Medicine and Technology at Oxford University in 2012.
