I am a cultural historian of knowledge, education and ideas. My first book, Generational Conflict and University Reform: Oxford in the Age of Revolution, won the 2014 Kevin Brehony Prize for the best first book in the history of education. My new book, Masculinity and Science in Britain, 1831-1918, was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2017. I am currently working on a study of the influence of classical scholarship and ancient natural philosophy on the emergence of the natural and physical sciences in the first half of the nineteenth century for OUP. I am a member of the Executive Committee of the History of Education Society and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
