Research Interests

My research interests focus on military history in the first half of the Twentieth Century. My current work focuses on the development and change of education and training within the British and Imperial armies, primarily through the study of officer education at cadet colleges and staff colleges.

In addition I am undertaking research into the application of multi-disciplinary (primarily Sociological) theories of culture and institutional innovation to the study of military culture and how militaries respond to and assimilate reforms to fundimental aspects of their cultural norms.
