Research Interests:

I am currently conducting research on three broad topics in the history of health and historical economic demography:

These projects span chronological and geographical boundaries from early modern England to twentieth-century Japan.


Originally from Denver, Colorado, I received a bachelor's degree from the University of Puget Sound with a major in History and a minor in Biology. I then studied for an M Phil in Economic and Social History at St. Hilda's College, University of Oxford before moving to Nuffield College for my doctorate. I have worked at LSE since 2015. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, gardening, hanging out with my dog and hiking.
