  • About

    I'm interested in exploring inter-imperial connections in the Early Modern Atlantic, especially economic and political ties between Britain and Spain. In particular, my work focuses on contraband trade between the British and Spanish colonies in the greater Caribbean area in the century following 1655 and its relationship to both legal and extralegal violence.
