My work focuses on various aspects of the legal, political, intellectual, and business histories that shaped the British Empire. My interests include the role of companies and corporations in colonial enterprise, overseas exploration and cartography, the historiography of British India, early modern economic thought, and digital and data visualization approaches to the problem of colonial sovereignty.
