Research interests

I am a postdoctoral researcher at King’s College London, working on the colonial strand of the project with a focus on East and South Africa. I hold an M.A. from the Humboldt Universität Berlin and a PhD from Trinity College Dublin. Previously I taught at the University of Exeter and worked at the German Historical Museum in Berlin.

My research is concerned with the social and cultural impact of the First World War on the colonial societies of South Africa as well as German and British East Africa. I am interested in the interaction between African, Indian, and European soldiers and civilians in the colonial theatres of war and the representation and memory of these campaigns in Europe and Africa.
