History of Parliament Research

Since joining the History of Parliament in 2009 I have worked on Irish biographies and constituency studies in the years between 1832 and 1868 as well as Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. My research interests include the Repeal party in parliament and its role in the development of Irish Liberalism, political controversies raised by the treatment of Irish election petitions in the 1830s, and the changing nature of the Irish electorate.
