PhD Candidate and Convenor of the Thatcher Network, Durham University

I am a PhD student and Teaching Assistant at Durham University, where I am also a Pemberton Scholar (at University College).

My thesis focuses on narrative approaches to documenting the emergence, development and continuity of Thatcherite ideas of nationhood and citizenship from the early 1980s to the present day.

In 2016-17, I was a Research Assistant in Durham's Centre for Modern Conflicts and Cultures on a project focusing on contemporary surveillance and intelligence-gathering cultures.

I am the Convenor of the Thatcher Network ( and the Events Officer of the Political Studies Association's Early Career Network.
