Sarah Law

Sarah has pursued an eclectic career. Following a degree in Natural Science, she gained a doctorate in Physics, wrote for The New Scientist and Physics World and taught briefly at the University of the West of England. An interest in history and gardening led her to Garden History and back into research. After an MA at Bristol University she was fortunate to be supported through a second doctorate, this time by the AHRC and centred on the eighteenth-century landscape of Rufford Abbey, Nottinghamshire. She lived in India for several years and since completing her Rufford work has returned to an earlier interest in botanic gardens, in particular, the colonial garden of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka.
