PhD supervision

I am interested in doctoral proposals in twentieth century British and American foreign policy, especially relating to economic relations and diplomacy between the two countries.

Research Interests

My research lies in the field of twentieth century international history. My first book, Post-War Planning on the Periphery, explored Anglo-American relations in South America during the Second World War in the broader context of the post-war economic diplomacy undertaken by the wartime allies. I have previously published articles in Diplomacy and Statecraft and the Journal of Transatlantic Studies on various aspects of British and American foreign policy towards Latin America, as well as several book chapters on Anglo-American diplomatic and economic relations. My current research includes a collaborative project exploring Anglo-American relations in Latin America throughout the twentieth century, an exploration of the role of British and American business groups in the reconstruction of international trade in the 1940s, and a project exploring Britain's contemporary role in Latin America, based on interviews with leading policy-makers. I also have a side interest in the political and cultural significance of the 1960s British pop group, the Beatles.

External Roles
