Research interests: 

nineteenth century US history

I am a PhD candidate in History at Yale. I study militia, gun clubs and rifle associations in the nineteenth and twentieth century United States. 
Prior to Yale, I received my BA from University College London and my MPhil from the University of Cambridge. At Yale I have co-convened the Racial Capitalism and the Carceral State working group. My research has been generously supported by the Isaac Newton Trust, the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscripts Library, the Macmillan Center and the Yale History Department among others.
I really encourage anyone curious about doing a PhD to get in touch.
