Watch my reel

AHRC-funded History of Art PhD student at the University of Cambridge, researching the concept of 'liveliness' or vividness in British visual art c.1530-c.1630. Click 'watch my reel' above to see a video about my research.

With support from the AHRC I work part-time as a Curatorial Intern at the National Portrait Gallery, London, on an exhibition of Tudor and Jacobean portrait miniatures by Nicholas Hilliard and Isaac Oliver, opening in 2019.

In 2018 I became a Founding Expert for PlaceCloud, a platform for geolocated podcasts. Click to listen to my placecasts.

I graduated with a First Class degree in History of Art from Cambridge University in 2014, before completing an MPhil in History of Art and Architecture with Distinction. My MPhil thesis researched the symbolism of clocks and dials in the material and visual culture of Tudor England, and was part-funded by the George Daniels Educational Trust, administered by the British Horological Institute and the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers. With this research I was runner-up in the University of Cambridge's Three Minute Thesis Competition Final 2015. Click for a video.

A scholar of St John's College since 2014, and a recipient of the Larmor Award, 2014, 'for students who excel both academically and in other aspects of life during their time in Cambridge', I also supervise, lecture and examine undergraduate papers in the History of Art Department.

Formerly Farley.
