Bio

I am a third year doctoral student from South Fulton, Tennessee. I am interested in Early-Modern and Modern European political-economy and imperialism, specifically the developments of the English and British State and Empire. My research focus is currently on the transition to and emergence of the “laissez-faire” British state and empire in the late 18th century and early-half of the 19th century by way of looking at ideologies, political debates, social outcry, and fiscal data concerning taxation and political-economic trends on domestic and imperial scale.
