I am the Harmsworth Junior Research Fellow in the History of America and World War One, based at the Rothermere American Institute and Corpus Christi College at the University of Oxford. My research focuses on twentieth-century literary and cultural history in Britain and America, particularly of the First World War. I have published on Edith Wharton, Katherine Mansfield, war letters, and the writings of First World War nurses. I am currently working on a monograph on the First World War and commemorative culture.
As well as my academic role at Oxford, I established and lead the twice-weekly TORCH Academic Writing Group for PhD students and Early Career Researchers, based at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities. I am on the Steering Committee of the Globalising and Localising the Great War network in the Faculty of History. I am on academia.edu and Twitter.
In August 2017 I was the Corpus Christi-Huntington Exchange Fellow at the Huntington Library in Pasadena, California. In Spring 2018 I will be a Remarque Fellow at the Remarque Institute at New York University. During the 2017-18 academic year, I am the recipient of a British Academy Rising Stars Engagement Award for 'Cultures and Commemorations of War: An Interdisciplinary Seminar', a series of three workshops which consider the practices and politics of war memory across time.
