Thank you for visiting this site.
My current post is Professor of Modern History at King's College London. My interests include the history of science and medicine, portraiture, gender, the practice of history and public history.
In August 2011 I was appointed as a Trustee of the Science Museum Group. This is made up of five museums and two storage sites. I chair the Collections and Research Committee and am a member of the Science Museum Advisory Board.
I am at work on the third edition of History in Practice and will post further details in due course.
This site supports my research, teaching, speaking and writing activities. Please follow the links, which will be extended as material is added to the site.
