I am assistant editor of The Adams Papers Editorial Project at the Massachusetts Historical Society. I received my B.A. with First Class Honours and Ph.D. from the University of Stirling. Between 2014 and 2015, I was Bernard and Irene Schwartz Fellow at the New-York Historical Society and Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School.
I specialize in early American history. My research primarily focuses on the intersections between political economy and social behavior in the revolutionary Atlantic. I am also interested in the origins of American political practice, material culture, collective biography, print culture, sociability, friendship, and masculinity. My first book, “The Sons of Britain,” which is under contract with Cornell University Press, examines New Yorkers’ political and economic networks prior to the American Revolution. I have published articles in Early American Studies, New York History, and the Long Island History Journal, and I have presented at regional and international conferences in Canada, Great Britain, and the United States. My research has been generously supported by various organizations and institutions, including the Royal Historical Society, the British Library, The Huntington Library, the David Library of the American Revolution, the New York State Archives, the New York State Library, the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan, and the New-York Historical Society.
