I’m a PhD student in the English and Creative Writing Department at the University of Plymouth, UK. As part of my PhD, I’m writing a trilogy of interconnected novellas, set in New England and spanning a time period from 1620 through to 2020. My writing has been informed by research into 17th-century colonial literature and Wampanoag history and culture, and reflects on the legacy of colonisation for the Wampanoag people. I gained my undergraduate degree in English from the University of Cambridge and my Masters in Creative Writing from Exeter University.

In August-September 2019, I undertook a research trip to New England supported by the Charlton Foundation, which supports Anglo-American student exchanges. During my trip, I met with educators and advisers at Plimoth Plantation Living Museum and the Wampanoag cultural development agency, Smoke Sygnals.
