PhD Candidate in American History
I am a PhD candidate in American History at Clare College. My research looks at Antebellum Charleston and the use of classicism/antiquity by a city to justify and validate its socio-economic model. My doctoral project is supervised by Professor James Raven.

Upon my retirement as the the managing partner of a large firm of solicitors in Manchester and Bath I decided to pursue an academic career.
