I was awarded an MA with Distinction in History from the Open University in 2016. My MA project focused on a study of Cirencester workhouse under the Old Poor Law.
I am pleased to remain with the Open University for my PhD working with Professor Paul Lawrence and Dr Donna Loftus. My current research focuses on welfare legislation in a later Georgian context and encompasses developments in local government and the interplay between the national and local state.
Poverty and poor relief; Social History; Local History; Political History and Economic History set within the context of the Georgian period.
