I am chair of exams and teach two optional courses on 'Warrior Nation: Prussia and Germany, 1740-1945' and 'Cold War Berlin: Politics and Culture in a Divided City'.

My research interests are primarily the political, social and cultural history of divided Germany in the Cold War. I have recently completed a large project on the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall. I am currently undertaking a project on Anglo-American and German film depictions of 'bad Nazis' and 'good Germans', which has been funded by the British Academy.
