I am a historian of the Second World War with particular research interests in the conflict fought between the Allies and Fascist Italy, 1940-1943. I completed my PhD, MA and BA in the Department of History at the University of Nottingham between 2010 and 2018.

Between 2018 and 2021 I undertook the role of Research and Knowledge Exchange Fellow within the School of Humanities. I supported portfolio of projects to increase the impact of research, support submissions to the REF, and develop research grant bids across the School.
