Originally from Leeds, West Yorkshire, I attended Benton
Park Comprehensive School before completing an undergraduate degree in History
at the University of York. Following this I completed a master’s degree in
Irish History at Queen’s University Belfast.
Research topics and interests
I am currently completing a thesis on ‘British government
policy in Northern Ireland under Labour 1974-79’. I am primarily interested in
modern British and Irish political history, in particular the history of the
British Labour party and other political groupings of the Left.
