My PhD research focused on the portrayals of the relationship between Britain and the Holocaust. I explored the ways in which the contemporary British response to the Holocaust has been represented in schools, museums, and similar educational settings.
In the British context, I seek to site my research within the broader context of existing Second World War narratives and public memory of the Holocaust. I have also conducted related research on topics such as POW Camps in the UK, and the wartime record of Winston Churchill. More broadly, I am interested in the formation of historical memory, both in Britain and abroad, and the place of museums/heritage within society.
For my undergraduate degree, I read History at Queens’ College, Cambridge. Subsequently, I completed an MA in History Education at University College London (UCL), and obtained the PGCE (University of Buckingham) whilst practising as a teacher of History.
Since 2018, I have acted as Book Reviewer for The Wiener Holocaust Library, and I am also a contributing author to platforms including the blogs of the British Association for Holocaust Studies (BAHS) and the University of Cambridge ‘Doing History in Public’ project. I am a member of the Durham University Centre for Modern Conflicts and Cultures (CMCC).
I welcome enquiries regarding collaborative research and opportunities for media work.
