I graduated from the University of Liverpool with a degree in History and French and a Master’s in Twentieth Century History. I studied for a PhD at Cardiff University under the supervision of Professor Kevin Passmore.
Before coming to the department in 2012, I was lecturer in Modern European History at Birkbeck, University of London (2009-10) and British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at Cardiff University (2010-2012).
I have written on the French veterans’ movement after the First World War and on political violence in interwar France. I have contributed to History Today magazine.
