I did my BA at the University of East Anglia (with a year at George Washington University in Washington DC) in American History and Politics and then a PhD at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where I worked with Jack P. Greene and Ronald G. Walters. After a brief spell as a lecturer at Towson State University in Baltimore, I joined Swansea in 1992 and am now Senior Lecturer. I am a fellow of the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, Williamsburg, Virginia, a member of many academic societies, and am on the organising committees of the British Group in Early American History and the European Early American Studies Association.
