I have taught history and politics in fee-paying and government funded schools and held a number of senior leadership roles. I have now returned to the government funded school sector in Hertfordshire.

I grew up in Hackney and attended a comprehensive school in the East End of London. I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at what was the University of Wales, Aberystwyth in Politics and International Relations with my PhD on humanitarianism/humanitarian intervention in international politics and England supervised by Professor Jenny Edkins and Professor Sir Steve Smith.  I recently completed an MSc at the University of Oxford (research available here) with a focus on historical education/knowledge and the application of experimental/cognitive psychology. I have worked with a variety of organisations including Euroclio, Europeana and Apple and have provided keynotes and seminars on topics including the use of ICT, culture change, leadership, staff diversity and history education.

I have published a number of resources/articles on pedagogy and historical education and I am currently a governor of Greenwich Free School. For a few examples of my work, please click on the ‘Presenting’ tab above.
