About Me

My research focuses on the history of war, culture and memory. I completed my PhD in the School of History at the Australian National University in 2015. My first book, Painting War: A history of Australia’s First World War art scheme, was published with Cambridge University Press in 2018 and I am also co-editor of Portraits of Remembrance, which was published with the University of Alabama Press in 2020.

I have won several international grants and awards in support of my research, including a UA-DAAD  Australia–Germany Joint Research Cooperation Scheme Grant and an Academy of the Humanities Travelling Fellowship. I have published and taught widely on war and culture and is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
