Personal profile


I read History and Modern Language Studies (specialising in Spanish) for my BA Honours Degree at the University of Liverpool. After which, I completed an MA in Twentieth Century History at the University of Liverpool which focused on the motivations and reactions of the powers involved in the 1982 Falklands/Malvinas Conflict, before studying for a PGCE in Secondary History.

After completing my MA and PGCE, I began studying for my History Ph.D at The University of Manchester focusing on Argentine, British and US media reactions to the Falklands/Malvinas Conflict.

In April 2019, I ran a major international conference entitled: ‘Falklands/Malvinas: War, Media and Society- History and Legacy’ at The University of Manchester, which was generously funded by Artsmethods, the British Commission for Military History and the Royal Historical Society. The conference attracted speakers from the Falkland Islands Government, British and Argentine veterans, postgraduate speakers, early career researchers, senior academics, journalists and librarians, with keynote speeches from Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman and Commodore Michael Clapp and Major General Julian Thompson.

As a result of my keen interest in the Falklands/Malvinas Conflict, I have been developing my Ph.D thesis into a book under the title: ‘Politics, Propaganda and the Press: International Reactions to the Falklands/Malvinas Conflict’, which is due for publication with Routledge in late 2022/early 2023.

During my Ph.D, I taught on several History and American Studies modules at Manchester, being awarded the University’s Eileen Raby Teaching Award for Outstanding Teaching (2020), a Senior Fellow from Advance HE (2021) and a Teaching Excellence Award for Inclusive Education and Flexible Learning and Digital Delivery (2022). After completing my Ph.D at Manchester, I am now a Lecturer in Modern British History here at Manchester, where I run my own Level 3 module: ‘Sport and British Society and Culture, c. 1837-1939’.

I have delivered a range of seminars, lectures and workshops on The University of Manchester’s History, American Studies and Artsmethods programmes. These have been on topics such as Modern British History, European History and US History, as well as Research Methods for PGR students. I run my own Level 3 module: ‘Sport and British Society and Culture, c. 1837-1939’.

I am happy to supervise projects on most topics in Modern British, Latin American and US History.
