Affiliations

Latin America Research Cluster

My research lies in the field of international relations in the twentieth century, with particular interests in US foreign policy towards Latin America and diplomatic relations between the US and Great Britain. My recent book, Post-War Planning on the Periphery, explored Anglo-American relations in South America during the Second World War in the broader context of the post-war economic diplomacy undertaken by the wartime allies. I am currently involved in a collaborative research project exploring Anglo-American relations in Latin America throughout the 20th century.
