I am a historian of empire. My current research explores the history of Spanish colonial rule in Asia in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries - the age of revolutions. 

Prior to coming to Texas, I completed my Bachelor of Economic and Social Sciences degree at the University of Sydney. My honours thesis was a social history of the great 1797 mutiny in the British Royal Navy. I also worked in the trade union movement for the Australian Federal Government in higher education policy.

You can find details of my recent publications and other scholarly activities on my academia.edu page.
