Birkbeck, University of London and Royal Museums Greenwich
I begun working full-time on conducting research for my PhD titled ‘Floating palaces’ in October 2020 at Birkbeck, University of London in partnership with Royal Museums Greenwich. Prior to this I was an Exhibitions Curator for a university collection (Royal Holloway, University of London) having previously worked in the cultural heritage sector across a range of museums and galleries (from provincial regimental museums to a collection of ‘national importance’ at the Wordsworth Trust). With this history of working in environments that primarily focus on encouraging collection-driven public engagement with historical themes, my interests in modern monarchy sway towards the material and visual aspects of royalty.
Current research projects on modern monarchy:
Floating palaces: royal yachts, maritime tours and constructions of British monarchy, empire and decolonisation, c. 1897-1939 – UK Arts and Humanities Research Council funded Collaborative Doctoral Partnership PhD research supervised by Prof. Jan Rueger (Birkbeck, University of London) and Jeremy Michell (Royal Museums Greenwich)
