I work on Modern German and European History, and am currently turning my doctoral thesis into a book as part of the Oxford Historical Monographs Series. This concerns the roles played by Catholicism in German society during the Second World War, and examines how religious community and faith helped shape German Catholics’ complex and shifting attitudes towards the conflict and the Nazi regime.
I studied for a BA degree at Hertford College, Oxford, from 2006 until 2009, before continuing to take an MSt and DPhil between 2009 and early 2014. I held a Hanseatic Scholarship at the Centre for Contemporary Historical Research in Potsdam during the academic year 2013/14, and subsequently taught at the University of Leeds from September 2014 until June 2015. My doctoral dissertation was officially commended by the judges of the Wiener Library’s Fraenkel Prize in October 2014. I joined Jesus College in summer 2015.
