My academic background is interdisciplinary and includes a degree in History and Politics from Queen Mary College, University of London, an MA in European Area Studies from the University of London and a D.Phil in Modern History from the University of Oxford. I worked for Barclays Bank International and as a freelance economic journalist (commenting on Spain and Portugal) before joining academia. Between 1987 and 1988 I held a Cañada Blanch Fellowship at the University of London. I was a lecturer in History at the University of York from 1988 to 1990. I had previously also held teaching assistantships in history and political science at a variety of institutions. I joined the University of Exeter as Lecturer in History in 1990 and was subsequently promoted to Senior lecturer.

I have lived in, and been a frequent visitor to, Spain since 1983. Madrid, Badajoz and Salamanca have been my principle places of residence but I have travelled and worked in many other parts of the country. I am fluent in Castilian Spanish and have a reading/oral comprehension of Catalan. Teaching and research have also taken me to the United States of America, the Russian Federation, the Netherlands and the UK.
