Research Interests

My research interests are largely interdisciplinary. After writing about the relationship between the poems of Alexander Pope and gardens of William Kent for my undergraduate dissertation in English at Trinity College Oxford, I am now focusing on the English Baroque. This includes the philosophical and political connections between the plays and buildings of Sir John Vanbrugh, as well as Mughal influence on his design, especially in relation to use of mausolea.
