I am a graduate student studying Early Modern Global History with minor fields in Modern European and Environmental history. My research takes a transnational approach to diplomatic history, focusing on the motives that have encouraged diplomatic ties between England and territories outside the British Isles during the Early Modern period. My master’s research focused on the diplomatic relationship between England and the Ottoman Empire from the 16th-19th centuries.  My current doctoral research uses the Restoration as a lens with which to understand diplomatic policy in England, focused toward Habsburg Spain in the 17th century.
