Following a career in Public Sector Finance, I completed an MA with Distinction i History at the University of Huddersfield in 2015. A version of my Masters dissertation entitled "Nature's Own Moderate: Vivian Simpson and the Northern Ireland Labour Party" was published in Saothar 42, the journal of the Irish Labour History Society in 2017. I successfully completed my PhD in History at Huddersfield in 2020, my thesis was entitled "Britains Other D-Day: the Politics of Decimalisation. I have given papers on the subject at the Economic History Society's Annual Conference in 2018 and the Royal New Zealand Numismatic Society's Triennial Conference in 2o20.

I am currently working on a book on decimalisation in the UK and Ireland, and am a Visiting Research Fellow at Huddersfield.
