I am a Master's student at the University of St Andrews, focusing on Austrian history. Presentations of femininity and masculinity, constructed and projected personae, religious views, and ideas around queenship are of particular interest to me. Specifically, I enjoy researching figures such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Empress Elisabeth of Austria, Empress Zita of Austria, and Baroness Mary Vetsera. Prior to my Master's course, I trained and performed professionally as an actress in Vienna.
