Since 2015, I've been based at University of Bristol where I am Lecturer in the Digital Humanities in the History Department. I am a historian of contemporary british politics, economics and society with particular research interests in digital humanities methodologies, rhetoric, and the history of political concepts.

My research examines twentieth-century British political rhetoric at macro and micro scales using a methodology that combines close-readings of archival materials with rhetorical theory and quantitative techniques from corpus linguistics.

I am also Co-Investigator on the AHRC-funded Thatcher's Pension Reform's Project which is using recently released materials to challenge existing interpretations of Thatcherism and the policy-making process.
