I am presently completing my doctoral thesis entitled ‘Liberty, Virtue, and the Commonwealth of Rights: The Republicanism of Algernon Sidney’, with guidance from Ann Thomson, my thesis supervisor, and Nicolas Guilhot, my second reader (since 2021; formerly Luca Molà, 2016-2018; Richard Bellamy, 2018-2021). Submission of my thesis is expected in May 2023.

In addition to this I am also a Research Fellow at the Fondazione Luigi Einaudi in Turin where, until November 2023, I am working on a project entitled ‘English Republican Texts in the French and Italian Enlightenment’, advised by Vincenzo Ferrone (Università degli Studi di Torino).

I am a member of the Editorial Board of the peer-reviewed journal Global Intellectual History as its Social Media Editor. I am also a co-organiser of the Association for Global Political Thought based at Harvard University, a network of scholars that hosts events dedicated to the study of political thought in international society and global contexts. Further to this, I am a member of the 18th Century Translators Dictionary project hosted at the EUI, the Università degli Studi di Firenze, and the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche. I co-administrate the online group ‘The Republic of Letters’.

I was a visiting researcher at the Fondazione Luigi Firpo, Centro di Studi sul Pensiero Politico, in Turin from September 2021 to May 2022, and likewise at the Institute for History, Leiden University in the Netherlands, from August to December 2018.

From 2017 to 2020 I was co-convenor of the EUI Intellectual History Working Group, organising various conferences, workshops, and talks at the EUI, including the first EUI Graduate Conference in Intellectual History, a successful international series now in its fifth year.

I came to the EUI after completing an MA in the History of Political Thought and Intellectual History at the University of London, jointly administered by University College London (UCL) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). During my time in London I predominantly researched early modern English, French, and Italian political thought, which culminated in a thesis with distinction entitled ‘Thomas Hobbes, the Regicide, and Political Obligation’, supervised by Quentin Skinner. Prior to my postgraduate studies I read History and Politics at Keble College, Oxford.
