Teaching Associate, Faculty of Arts



I am cultural and social historian of contemporary Britain.

My research focuses mainly on the British tobacco industry and how it negotiated the smoking and health issue during the second half of the twentieth century. As such, I am interested in the histories of public health, advertising and consumerism.

Teaching Summary

I teach on the following first-year undergraduate modules:

  • HIST1001, Learning History
  • HIST1006 From Reformation to Revolution: an introduction to early modern history, c.1500-1789
  • HIST1009 Roads to Modernity, 1789-1945
  • HIST1014 The Contemporary World since 1945

I also act as convener for third year dissertations (HIST3018).

During the Spring semester, I will be holding office hours at 16.00-17.00 on Mondays and 11-12.00 on Thursdays (both times in room C18 in the Humanities Building). Please drop me an email beforehand to book a meeting.
