I am an architectural- and design history specialising in the Georgian period, the Gothic Revival, heraldry and antiquarianism. Currently I am a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow at the University of Stirling. My three-year project, 'Antiquarian by Design: Fakery and the Material Object in Britain 1720–1824', examines the role of fakery and forgery across the arts in Georgian Britain. In 2015–16 I was an AHRC-funded Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stirling working on ruins and their influence upon Georgian culture and literature. My research centres upon Georgian design history — architecture, interiors, furniture — antiquarianism and heraldry.
