'Evolving emergency medical response in the UK humanitarian sector'
My research investigates the changing role and nature of British humanitarian response, focusing specifically on medical response. Using a historical methodology, my research investigates the period between the years of 1988 – 2014. My thesis analyses Britain’s role within international humanitarian networks and traces the changes that have taken place within British humanitarianism insofar as growth, understandings and government involvement.

My teaching interests bridge both historical studies and humanitarian studies. Courses I have instructed include:
- The History of Humanitarian Aid (MA course- HCRI: 2016)
- The Cultural History of Modern War (Undergraduate 2nd Year- History Department: 2017)
- Key Concepts in Humanitarianism (Undergraduate 1st Year- HCRI: 2017)
- Disaster Management and Humanitarian Response in Scholarship and Practice (Undergraduate 1st Year- HCRI: 2016- 2017)
Why I’m doing a PhD at HCRI
I was excited by the interdisciplinary nature of the centre, which allows medical doctors to work alongside historians and dramatists. I feel privileged to be able to draw on such a diverse range of knowledge and experience in the development of my own work.
