About

img_4593I am an experienced researcher, writer and teacher at King’s College London, and Imperial War Museums.

My research focuses on issues related to social relations and identity in modern Britain and the British Empire and intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class.

My doctoral research (successfully examined in January 2017) focused on colonial encounters during the First World War, as experienced by troops from New Zealand, South Africa and the West Indies.

The findings contribute to growing understandings of the global nature of the conflict, through its comparative approach, and the process of encounters in colonial settings, with links to the spatial turn and histories of emotions.

I am developing my next research project, examining mixed race relationships in Britain after 1945, with a particular focus on London, building on work undertaken during my Masters in Contemporary British History.
