Lecturer in Imperial and Environmental History, University of Bristol

I am an environmental historian at the University of Bristol, researching animal-human relationships in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My book project, developing my PhD, traces the production of taxidermy specimens in Britain and the British Empire, with a focus on the sensory histories of craft and labour, and ecological processes of decay and transformation. Until September 2022, when I started as Lecturer, I was a Research Associate on the AHRC Leadership Fellows Project ‘dark-dwellers as more-than-human misfits’ (PI Dr Andy Flack), researching the perceptions of the lives and senses of dark-adapted animals.
