I joined Birkbeck in 1997 after having worked for the Universität der Bundeswehr in Hamburg (University of the German Army), the Haus der Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland in Bonn (a museum for contemporary German history) and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s mission in Bosnia. My research interests are in particular military and diplomatic aspects of 20th century German history and Franco-German relations.

I am currently writing a book on the history of the French Foreign Legion from its foundation in 1831 to the early 21st century.
