I have been a Lecturer in International History at the University of Salford since January 2014. Before this, I completed my AHRC funded doctoral research on intelligence and security during the post-war Attlee government, 1945-1951. My research looks at the post-war interface between intelligence and policy in Britain.
I teach on Britain's Cold War, post-1945 domestic security, the UK's foreign intelligence agencies and Twentieth Century international history. I am the Programme Lead for the University of Salford's part-time Distance Learning MA in Intelligence & Security Studies and the Admissions Lead for the Politics & Contemporary History subject group.
My work has been published in the Journal of Intelligence History, Intelligence & National Security and The Historical Journal. My monograph on Intelligence, Security and the Attlee Governments, 1945 - 1951 was published by Manchester University Press in December 2016.
