Profile

I joined Queen Mary in 2009. I have worked primarily in the spheres of modern British and Irish history until now. I also have a burgeoning interest in Anglo-US foreign policy and its role in the development of the modern Middle East and the politics of Islamism.

Research

Research Interests:

The main focus of my previous research has been the strategy, ideology and culture of Irish republican groups. I have also considered the response of the British State to such groups, with specific reference to the conflict in Northern Ireland. And more recently, I have expanded my focus to consider other analogous movements, particularly in the Middle East. My research interests include:

  • Irish Republicanism
  • The use of political violence and its use by non-State actors
  • State responses to anti-State challenges
  • The emergence of Islamism in the twentieth century
  • The functioning of the late British Empire, particularly with reference to Egypt
