Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History, University of Birmingham

I joined the Department of History at Birmingham in September 2011. I grew up in Sprowston, just outside the city of Norwich in Norfolk, and studied history as an undergraduate at the University of Warwick, where I remained for my MA and PhD studies, as well as teaching on the BA and MA programmes there.

Following the award of my PhD in 2009 I spent six months as an early career fellow at Warwick’s Institute of Advanced Study, and in 2009/10 I lectured in reformation history and theology at Durham University’s Department of Theology and Religion.

Between September 2010 and August 2013 I held a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (for one year at Durham, then for two years at Birmingham) for a project entitled ‘The Ten Commandments and the English Reformation.’ I formally took up my post as lecturer in early modern history at Birmingham in September 2013, and became senior lecturer in May 2016.
