DPhil History

Research Interests: Intellectual History, Histories of the Pacific and East Asia, Diplomatic and International History, Transnational history and the history of international institutions.

I am a DPhil candidate in History, affiliated with the Centre for Global History. Prior to arriving at Nuffield, I received an MSt in Global and Imperial History from St Hilda's College, University of Oxford (awarded with distinction in July 2015).

I am currently researching the role, influence and output of public intellectuals affiliated with Pacific-orientated international organisations in the early twentieth century, such as the Pan-Pacific Union and the Institute of Pacific Relations.
