While at Penn, her doctoral research in the UK was funded in part by the Mellon Foundation under the guise of an IHR pre-doctoral fellowship and an SSRC international dissertation fellowship. She has lived in the UK more or less continuously since 2005 (with a brief nine-month stint back at Penn in 2007/8 to finish her PhD and teach as a departmental lecturer), and thus holds both American and British citizenship.
