Summary of research interestsPlaces:
- Nineteenth Century
I hold a PhD in Modern History from Queen Mary, University of London. My research focuses on the international and intellectual history of Modern Britain and Southeastern Europe since the nineteenth century.
I currnetly work on two monographs. The first is a survey of British Internatioal Thought on Southeastern Europe provisionally titled "British Intellectuals and Imperial Order in Southeastern Europe (1870-1930)". The second project is a history of European interventions in Modern Greece since the Crimean War.
I have held teaching positions at Queen Mary University of London, UCL, NYU, the Hellenic Open University. I currently teach undergraduate and postgradute courses in international history and politics at City University of London and the LSE
