Caroline specialises in the social and cultural history of medicine, health and disability in Britain, circa 1660-1918. Her research looks at the complex historical relationship between war, medicine, and social welfare institutions, such as workhouses, hospitals, almshouses and asylums.
She also researches and teaches public history and employability, and works with students to develop their employability skills through participation in research projects and work-informed and work-based learning opportunities.
She joined the History team at Northampton in September 2015. Prior to this, she was the Economic History Society Tawney Research Fellow at the University of London’s Institute of Historical Research (IHR).
