Teaching

My academic career has always benefited from a close association between research and teaching. I have taught undergraduate students from a hugely diverse range of backgrounds, and on three different continents. I previously taught at the Universities of British Columbia, Queensland, and Cambridge. I currently teach at University College Dublin.

My teaching specialisations include global history, the history of Early Modern Europe, and the history of science and technology. Some courses I have taught include:
