I am an historian of Latin America, and of Argentina in particular, focusing on the Cold War period and left-wing political cultures. I have two primary strands of interest: firstly, Christianity and politics, especially the emergence and trajectory of liberation theology; and secondly, exile, international solidarity and transnational human rights activism. Currently, I am completing a monograph on the Argentine Christian left, and working on two edited volumes.
As well as teaching at Liverpool, I am an Associate Fellow at the Institute of Latin American Studies, School of Advanced Studies (University of London). Outside of academia, I have worked in publishing, taught English and employment support roles for migrants and refugees. I retain close contacts with the Latin American community in the UK, mainly through my work with the Indoamerican Refugee and Migrant Organisation (IRMO), as well as the Argentina Solidarity Campaign, where I have organised a range of public events on human rights, environmental issues, feminism and indigenous communities.
