I work on the Knowledge for Development (K4D) programme, which provides policy-relevant research on humanitarianism and development issues to the Department for International Development (DFID).
Before then, I researched a variety of historical humanitarian work from famine relief to political advocacy in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. After BA in politics and modern history (2008) and an MA in cultural history (2009), I completed a PhD at Manchester in 2013 entitled 'British humanitarians and Russia, 1890-1923'. I have also worked as a research assistant on several history projects in universities and the charity sector.
I have taught history and politics at Manchester, Salford and Bangor universities.
