Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS)

College: Trinity College


I work on the history of imperial thought in the early-twentieth century, focusing on debates in the British metropole about race and capitalism. Prior to the PhD, I completed an MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History at Cambridge (Trinity College) and a BA in History and Politics at the University of Oxford (Harris Manchester College).

I currently teach the finalist paper ‘Political Philosophy and The History of Political Thought since. 1890’ for History and HSPS students.
