I completed my PhD at the University of Manchester in 2009 and have been working as a Research Associate at HCRI since February 2010. In August 2011 I took up the post of Lecturer in Humanitarianism and Conflict Response and HCRI MA Director.
My research focuses on the humanitarian assistance provided to refugees and displaced persons (DP) since 1945, with special reference to the work of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). One element of my work, focusing on Quaker responses to DP nationalism in camps in Germany after World War 2, appears in Warlands: Population Resettlement and State Reconstruction in Soviet-East European Borderlands, 1945-1950, eds. Peter Gatrell and Nick Baron (2009).
