Teaching and Engagement

Teaching and Engagement

At Harvard’s Kennedy School, I help to teach a seminar, the Intelligence Study Group. I also help to run and convene the Intelligence Project’s Speaker Series, and the Applied History Working Group. I am also a convenor of the Cambridge University Intelligence Seminar.

My teaching and academic engagement at Harvard builds on the teaching I did at Cambridge University, where I helped to run and develop an undergraduate course on intelligence history, “The Secret World: the Rise of Governments and Intelligence Communities”, which at the time was persistently the most popular final-year undergraduate course offered in the Faculty of History at Cambridge.

My current research is funded by Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. While training to be a barrister, I was a Queen Mother Scholar of Middle Temple.

My doctoral and post-doctoral research at Cambridge was funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council, Cambridge University’s Isaac Newton Trust, and a Research Scholarship from Trinity College, Cambridge.
