I am a social historian of modern Britain. My current research explores changing ideas about nature and the environment in everyday contexts. I use a range of methodological approaches to these issues, including oral history. All my work tries to blend empirical historical practice and social theory.

My previous research has studied urban change and popular politics in nineteenth-century London, and the historical political ecology of waste as both a material and an ideological issue in modernity.

I am presently Head of the Discipline of Humanites at the Penryn Campus.
