I completed my BA (History, 2003), MPhil (US Foreign Policy, 2005), and PhD (2011) at the University of Birmingham. Prior to joining Plymouth I held academic positions at the University of Warwick, the University of Nottingham, and the London School of Economics (LSE). Between 2010 and 2013 I was a Fellow in the Department of International Relations at the LSE.
I am interested in all aspects of post-war US foreign policy, with specific expertise in US policy in Iran. I have published a number of journal articles and chapters examining different aspects of US-Iranian relations and my book 'US Foreign Policy and the Iranian Revolution: The Cold War Dynamics of Engagement and Strategic Alliance' was published by Palgrave Macmillan in October 2013.
