Research student

I am a PhD student in the School of Modern Languages, where I am researching the development of Christian Democratic homeownership cultures in post-war Belgium and France. My work is funded by the AHRC South West & Wales Doctoral Training Partnership.

I studied for a BA 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 the ESIEE engineering college. I later completed an MA in Modern History at the University of Sheffield, before beginning my PhD at Cardiff University in 2019.
