Profile Summary

I have been a Lecturer in International History at Salford since January 2014. Before this I completed my AHRC funded doctoral research on intelligence and security during the post-war Attlee government, 1945-1951. My research looks at the post-war interface between intelligence and policy in Britain.

I am willing to supervise dissertations on a range of topics including Britain and the Cold War, British intelligence and security, and contemporary intelligence and security issues. Recent subjects include British policy towards the Soviet Union, 1945-1949, the impact of the Suez crisis on British decolonisation, the development of British counter-insurgency in Malaya and Kenya, and post-war strategic deception.

My book Intelligence, Security and the Attlee Government, 1945 - 1951 is available from Manchester University Press, and I have publlished in the Journal of Intelligence History, Intelligence and National Security and The Historical Journal. I have contributed to The Conversation UK, BBC History Magazine and History Today, as well as discussions on ITV Granada, BBC Radio Scotland, Channel 5 News, Sputnik and other media outlets.
