Statement of Research:
I am a Europeanist who specializes in maritime history. The focus of my research is on British privateers during the War of the Spanish Succession. My dissertation on the Woodes Rogers expedition (1708-1711) contextualizes British privateering in the Spanish Pacific during that conflict by emphasizing the socioeconomic background of the officers and investors involved.
