I completed my PhD at Newcastle University in 2015 focussing on the remembrance and representation of Britain & the Cyprus conflict of 1974. My research and teaching interests span a range of topics associated with modern British, European and Cypriot history. In particular, I have a deep interest in the process of memory and the different means by which individuals and collectives attempt to make sense of the past. I teach on a range of undergraduate modules at Newcastle.
ResearchModern British, European and Cypriot history. History and memory, conflict and colonialism, migration and displacement, End of Empire, Oral History.
