I am Senior Lecturer in History, and the School of Humanities research students' tutor. I am also director of the Centre for Regional and Local History Research.

My research examines popular politics in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, with a particular focus on the spaces and places of protest in northern England. My first book was Loyalism and Radicalism in Lancashire, 1798-1815 (OUP, 2009). My next monograph, Protest and the Politics of Space and Place, 1789-1848, will be published by Manchester University Press in December 2015. See the website:

I enjoy experimenting with mapping with GIS, cultural geography and social movement theory. I am one of the two 2015 winners of the British Library Labs competition, for my project, 'Political Meetings Mapper' -

I am involved in initial projects relating to garden cities and post-war new towns in Hertfordshire. The history of modernism and 20thC architecture and urban planning is a growing side-interest alongside my main research into 19thC popular protest.

I come from Rochdale in Lancashire. I read Modern History at St. John's College, Oxford. I taught at the universities of Oxford, Bath Spa and Edinburgh before joining Hertfordshire in 2009. I served as Acting Head of History in 2014.
