My recently completed DPhil research examines the relationships and interactions between British and French soldiers on the Western Front of the First World War.
In February 2012 I was selected to participate in an AHRC collaborative workshop to inform and influence BBC thinking around their centenary coverage.
I am also a contributor to the open educational resources project WW1 Continuations and Beginnings organised in conjunction with the University of Oxford and JISC
I began at Sussex in 2002 studying Media Practice and Theory at Undergraduate level. I was able to take numerous History classes alongside my Media major and build up my interest in the representations of modern conflict.
In 2005 I took my MA in Contemporary War and Peace Studies also at Sussex.
In January of 2008 I returned to university to begin studying my DPhil.
I was also an inaugural Research Hive Scholar in the library.
I am currently a Visiting Research Fellow to the Centre for the History of War and Society. I have been an Associate Tutor at the University of Sussex for several years where I have taught and lectured on the First World War.
