Myfyriwr ymchwil,

Mae'r cynnwys hwn ar gael yn Saesneg yn unig.


I am a PhD student in the School of Modern Languages, where I am researching the role of social Catholic movement in the conflict between family and state in France during the interwar years. My work is funded by the AHRC South West & Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW DTP2) and supervised by Prof. Hanna Diamond (Cardiff, MLANG) and Prof. Marion Demossier (Southampton). 

I studied for a BA (Joint Hons.) in History & French at the University of Nottingham between 2014 and 2018, during which time I spent a year working in Paris for Steele & Holt press agency and ESIEE engineering college. I later completed an MA in Modern History at the University of Sheffield, specialising in post-war French politics. I began my PhD at Cardiff in October 2019.

While at Cardiff, I have acted as General Editor of Question, the postgraduate journal of the SWW DTP (2019-21). I have also taught on the French module ML6187 'National and Global Perspectives on France' during the 2020-21 academic year.

I am currently a postgraduate co-lead for the History & Heritage research theme within MLANG (2020-22).
