I am a historian of modern European and Italian history, with a particular emphasis on the period of the Second World War. I completed my PhD entitled Occupying Puglia: The Italians and the Allies, 1943-1946 in 2015 at Newcastle University. I am particularly interested in the civilian experience of war and occupation and the impact of war on public health. I teach on a range of undergraduate modules at Newcastle and have contributed to the MA in European History.
