I am currently a lecturer in human geography at the University of Hull, where I am also AHRC EC Fellow. As a historical and cultural geographer, my research interests include 1. The geographies of enclosure, property, protest and the law (in both historic and contemporary settings); 2. The historic landscape, especially rural and estate landscapes; 3. Women's histories.
Recent research projects and publications include work on early modern enclosure riots (in History Workshop Journal, the Journal of Historical Geography and the Agricultural History Review) and on elite women's role in agricultural improvement and estate management in Georgian England (Rural History; and a soon-to-be-complete book on 'Elite Women and the Agricultural Landscape 1700-1830' to be published by Ashgate).
