I am a social and political historian of modern Britain.  I am currently investigating the social and cultural history of popular environmental ideas in the twentieth century. Previously, I have researched urban change and popular politics in nineteenth century London, and the cultural, technological and political history of wasting.

My work has a particular focus on the everyday contexts of environmental ideas and politics. An example of my most recent published research in this area can be found here.

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