I joined the University of Westminster as Reader in French Studies in 1995. Before that I had been a lecturer in economic history in the History department of the University of Manchester; a visiting fellow in the department of History and Civilisation, at the European University Institute, Florence; and held a one-year British Academy fellowship.
I have a long history of teaching nineteenth and twentieth century European economic and political history, French history (in French) as well as the history of European integration.
I am currently module leader for 1HIS515 Democracy and Dictatorship: a History of Twentieth Century Europe. I also teach a level 6 module 1HIS 605 The Russian Revolution and a level 4 module 1HIS 420 The London Blitz, and I supervise undergraduate dissertations in the module 1HIS669.
My research interests include the history of France in the twentieth century; the history of European integration; relations between Britain and France; and the history of taxation. I am happy to supervise students in any of these fields.
I am a member of the Economic History Society and the University Association for Contemporary European Studies
