My primary research interest is eighteenth-century Anglo-American legal history. My PhD focuses on legal appeals from Jamaica and Virginia to the Privy Council, the highest court of the British Empire for colonial appeals. I have also worked on Privy Council appeals from Barbados and Massachusetts. 


I have supervised for Paper 22 (North American history from 1607 to 1865).
