Academic Background

DPhil, MA, BA

I received my BA and MA from the Universities of Victoria and Toronto respectively, both in my native country of Canada. I was awarded my DPhil from Oxford in 2021. Before Jesus, I taught at St. Anne’s College, Oxford and King’s College, London.

Research Interests

I am interested in the Modern History of France, Europe and the World. My DPhil thesis examined popular anti-communism in France after the Second World War. My next project analyses the impact of transnational business networks on the early stages of European integration.
