My research lies in the field of international relations in the twentieth century, with particular interests in US foreign policy towards Latin America and diplomatic relations between the US and Great Britain. My recent 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. My future research will explore US foreign policy towards Latin America throughout the 20th century, in the context of external crises. I am also currently involved in a collaborative, interdisciplinary research project exploring transatlantic relations during the Second World War. This will result in the publication of a special edition of the Journal of Transatlantic Studies.
I am interested in doctoral proposals in the following broad areas:
Twentieth century US foreign policy / diplomacy.
Twentieth century inter-American relations.
Anglo-American relations / diplomacy.
Diplomatic / ambassadorial relations.
I am the course convener for the following undergraduatemodules:
PPR.332: United States Foreign Policy Since 1945
PPR.330: Britain in the World
I also teach on the following postgraduate modules:
PPR.430: Theory and Concepts in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy
PPR.431: Issues and Practice in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy
