I lecture in defence studies and military history in the Centre for Defence and Security Studies. After a period of focus on programme administration and qualification development, I have recently returned to research active status, with a period of special research leave.
I am a dedicated lecturer who strives to deliver knowledge and understanding of subject areas while also assisting students to develop their critical analysis and scholarly writing skills, both of which contribute to employability. I also have a track record of successful postgraduate supervisions.
My forthcoming books and articles are principally in the interrelated areas of: the Pacific War; contemporary and historical airpower; and armed forces and society, including casualty administration as an aspect of the experience of wartime loss and bereavement. For a sample of recent scholarship, see my chapter, "Aircrew Loss and Bereavement: Exploring Casualty Files of the Royal Australian Air Force, 1939-45", in New Directions in War and History (2016). For shorter pieces of scholarship, see entries in the Australian Dictionary of Biography. For a sample of writing from my earlier professional experience as a public historian, see A Bitter Fate (2002).
My academic qualifications are a BA(Hons) in History from the University of New England and a PhD in History from UNSW Canberra. I am also completing a Postgraduate Diploma in Museum Studies at Massey University from Massey University.
Professional recognition includes a fellowship in the seminar in military history conducted by the Department of History, United States Military Academy, 2010; and appointment to the Editorial Board of the RNZAF Journal in 2017.
