I am currently on an ESRC funded doctoral programme at Newcastle University. My research explores the prevalence of 19th century entrepreneurial schools across Northumberland between 1869-1889. As a foundation stage to doctoral studies at Newcastle University I completed a PGCR with both Qualitative and Quantitative modules. I'm versed in SPSS and ArcMap as a result.
I am also assisting with some research at the Centre for Research on Entrepreneurship, Wealth and Philanthropy. We are exploring the story of philanthropy from the medieval period to the present day in the North East of England.
Prior to doctoral training I completed an Ma:Ed in International perspectives of educations (International Development) with a dissertation exploring the 1870 Education Act in Newcastle. I took a historical perspective of entrepreneurial education during England's economic development as a mirror to contemporary low-cost private schools in developing economies.
My undergraduate degree was in History, at Newcastle University, with a dissertation exploring the impact of Tyneside economic growth on traditional industrial cultures in the mid-19th century.
