Senior Lecturer and Director of Postgraduate Teaching, School of Politics, Philosophy, International Relations and Environment, Keele University

I studied History at Clare College, Cambridge, and Contemporary British History at Queen Mary College, University of London. I stayed at Queen Mary to do my PhD and I was a Tutorial Fellow in International History at LSE before coming to Keele.

My research is on post-1945 British history, particularly Britain’s relations with Europe, Britain in the Cold War, British-French relations, and British nuclear weapons policy.

I am currently working on a social and cultural history of the Parachute Regiment, the 1982 Falklands War and its aftermath. My book will be published by Penguin in 2018.
