I am a Lecturer in U.S. History at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. Before joining Birmingham, I was the Sir Christopher Cox Fellow at New College, Oxford. My book, Gentlemen Revolutionaries: Power and Justice in the New American Republic, comes out this summer with Princeton University Press.
These days I’m working on transatlantic financial networks and state-formation in the late eighteenth century, and a biography of Angelica Church. My article on revolutionary merchants, including Angelica’s husband John Carter/Church, was recently published in Enterprise & Society.
