I have taught history and politics in the state and independent sectors and I am also a Deputy Head.
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, race 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 at Greenwich Free School. Any free time I have is spent with my brilliant wife and beautiful daughter.
