I am interested in the history of American foreign relations and the history of American Jews, particularly the interaction between these two topics in the twentieth century. I am originally from the UK, where I studied for both my undergraduate and Master’s degrees. I have also spent a number of years outside academia working for large accounting firms in the private sector.
