I began my academic career with a Masters degree in Modern British and European History at the University of Oxford in 2010, having graduated from the University of Manchester that year. I stayed at Oxford to complete my DPhil, also in History, fully funded by the AHRC. I went on to a Research Fellowship at Pembroke College, University of Cambridge (2015-2017) where I published Edmund Burke and the Invention of Modern Conservatism, 1830-1914: An Intellectual History (Oxford University Press, 2017; paperback 2019), which won the 2018 Longman-History Today Book Prize. In 2017 I was appointed Lecturer in Modern British History at Columbia University, but, after a whirlwind year in NYC, I was very happy to return to Manchester in September 2018 in my new role as Lecturer in Modern British History.

I have also written and reviewed for the Financial Times, the New Statesman, and History Today
