I hold an MA (I. Staatsexamen) in History, German and Pedagogics from Freiburg University and a PhD from Durham University. Research and teaching interests include migration studies, German and global history, and First World War studies. My monograph on German diasporic nationalism during the nineteenth century was named a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title. My latest monograph has been published with Oxford University Press and is entitled ‘Enemies in the Empire. Civilian Internment in the British Empire during the First World War’. Related public engagement activities were funded by an AHRC impact grant. I am also Principal Investigator on a forthcoming AHRC project entitled 'South Africa in World War I: Digital and Virtual Experiences’; and Co-Investigator on the DAAD-funded project 'Promoting German Pop Music Studies in the UK'. I am a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, a visiting Research Associate at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, a member of the AHRC Peer Review College, and an executive committee member of the Association for German Studies (AGS).
