I am primarily interested in women’s activities in Early Modern Europe. My undergraduate thesis examined the relationship between Mary Stuart and Elizabeth Tudor, looking particularly at how their childhoods influenced their politics and interactions with one another. During my time at Queen’s I will work under the supervision of Dr. Jeffrey Collins studying women’s contributions to medicine in Renaissance Europe.
