I am an international historian focusing on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My research interests lie at the intersection of international relations and culture, ideology, religion, and social issues. My publications have examined the impact of ideas and beliefs on international events and vice versa. I teach late-eighteenth and nineteenth-century European history (Tripos paper 17) and associated international history subjects. I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge in 2015, and my history BA, also at Cambridge and at Hughes Hall, in 2011. Before studying at Cambridge, I was an entrepreneur and corporate financier, in a career that took me to London and Prague. My publications include The Orient, the Liberal Movement, and the Eastern Crisis of 1839-41 (Palgrave MacMillan, 2016), The Bell of Treason: the 1938 Munich Agreement in Czechoslovakia (Profile Books, 2018), and various articles for the International History Review, Middle Eastern Studies, and the Historical Journal.
