Hi, I'm Helen Mbye and I am a Leverhulme Trust Doctoral scholar within the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute at the University of Southampton.

The SMMI/Leverhulme Trust have given me the opportunity to realise my ambition for Doctoral study within the sphere of late medieval socio-economics. Coastal change and its effect on communities in the past can inform coastal communities in the present. This is exciting. History is not just for a dusty bookshelf. It is relevant and the SMMI recognise that.

Combining Late Medieval History with Geomorphology to better understand the social and economic changed wrought by coastal erosion and accretion upon coastal communities c.1250-1350

Supervising my project are Professor David Sear (Geography), Dr Craig Lambert and Dr Nicholas Karn (History)
