    Research Interest 1

    My current work is on the urban impacts of maritime capital and labour in seaport cities. This pays particular attention to the changing nature of waterfront districts in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as many conflicting interests struggled to own and use constricted dockland spaces. In 2010/11, I was Principal Investigator on an AHRC-funded public history project called 'Mapping Memory on the Liverpool Waterfront since the 1950s', part of the AHRC Beyond Text research programme. This was a collaborative project involving Rachel Mulhearn (National Museums Liverpool), film-makers Sam Meech and Tim Brunsden (Re-Dock), and Laura Balderstone (University of Liverpool).

    Research Interest 2

    In 2012-14, I was Co-Investigator on 'Atlantic Sounds', led by Catherine Tackley of the Open University. This AHRC-funded Research Network held meetings over eighteen months culminating in a major conference in 2014, and explored the role of music in cultural connections around the Atlantic rim from the early nineteenth-century to the mid-twentieth.
