Biography

I received my BA and MSt at the University of Oxford and completed my PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London  as a Thomas Holloway Scholar in Modern History in 2011.  I am a specialist in the collective memory of the Holocaust in the international arena since 1945, with particular emphasis on Europe and the historical development and consequences of the Holocaust ‘memory boom’ since 1989. I have lectured in History at the University of Northampton and have worked as part of the EU Marie Curie Diasporic Constructions of Home and Belonging Initial Training Network, a joint research project run by WWU Muenster, Oxford University, Stockholm University, SOAS, the University of Northampton and the University of Mumbai. I published my monograph, Holocaust Remembrance Between the National and the Transnational: A Case Study of the Stockholm International Forum and the First Decade of the ITF with Bloomsbury Academic (2015). I was a Teaching Fellow in Twentieth Century European History at Leicester (2015-2016).  I am a member of the Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.
