I am Associate Professor in History at Liverpool Hope University. I have appeared on British and Irish television a few times and my writings have graced various publications including The Guardian, BBC News magazine, The Big Issue, and (regularly) The Irish Times.
I am the author of four books and am interested in many aspects of modern history and current affairs, but specialise in Food history and Irish / British history. I’m currently writing a book on centennial memory and commemoration of the Great Irish Famine.
