Summary

I am primarily an economic and social historian of the British Atlantic world in the ‘long’ eighteenth century (1688 - 1840). My particular academic specialism is the history of merchants, ships, foreign trade and ports. I also have subsidiary academic interests in Australian history and in music history. I have previously taught in schools, colleges and other universities before coming to Brunel. I am a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.

Qualifications:

  • BA 1st class honours, Combined Arts, University of Leicester
