I am undertaking my PhD studies as a NUS-Cambridge Trust Scholar under the supervision of Dr David Smith. My doctoral project is on the regicide of Charles I of England and its impact on contemporary notions of time and the future. I focus mainly on printed sources, including almanacs, histories, and newsbooks of the Civil War and Commonwealth periods. 

Before coming to Cambridge I completed my joint degree at the National University of Singapore and the Australian National University, and my MSc at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.  

Details on upcoming conference papers are at my personal site.
