Bio/Research

I was born and raised in Nepean, Ontario. I received my BA in History and Political Science from the University of Toronto in 1989, and stayed there to pursue my MA (1990) and PhD (1997) in British history with J.M. Beattie. From 1997 to 1999, I held a Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship at Green College, University of British Columbia, where I worked with the late Richard Ericson. Before coming to Victoria in July 2004, I served as Lecturer in British History at the University of Queensland, Australia.

I am currently finishing my first monograph, as well as a website project – "Capital Convicts at the Old Bailey, 1689-1837" –which are the fruition of more than a dozen years archival research.

I am also working on a textbook tentatively entitled Punishment in Modern England: Historical Voices (Palgrave Macmillan), as well as a series of publications deriving from my capital punishment research.
