I am a historian, writer and reviewer. My writing has appeared in The Guardian, The Financial Times, The Irish Times, and elsewhere, and I have worked with radio and TV as a BBC New Generation Thinker.
My first book on food history is out now with Bloomsbury, and you can learn more about my research here. I am currently an Editorial Fellow at History Workshop, and writing freelance.
I worked previously at the Department of Economic History at the LSE, where I was a research partner on an EU project on the history of citizenship; my colleagues and I have recently published papers from our work in Theory & Society, the European Review of Economic History, and the Journal of Social History. I hold a D.Phil in Economic & Social History from Balliol College, Oxford, and previously studied History at Trinity College, Dublin.
I also worked with the Royal Historical Society in London, where I was a co-author of landmark reports on race and gender in UK History.
I also work with the Ireland’s Edge conference at the Other Voices festivals in Dingle and elsewhere, where I have hosted discussions on migration, identity, culture, and sustainability.
