I am Professor of Early Modern British History and Senior Research Fellow at Jesus College and St Benet’s Hall. Until recently, my research interests focussed on the reigns of the Tudors, especially that of Elizabeth I. In 2014, I co-edited with Paulina Kewes a collection of essays on the late Elizabethan Succession Question, entitled Doubtful and Dangerous (MUP). My most recent book was Elizabeth I and her Circle (OUP, 2015), which examined Elizabeth's political relationships with some of her kin, courtiers and councillors. Now I am writing a book examining the accession of James in 1603 and analysing the continuities and changes that ensued. It will be called ‘Regime Change’ and is to be published by OUP.
