My research is on the history of cartography and although trained as a geographer, I am now a History lecturer. I graduated in Geography from St. John's College, University of Oxford in 1982. My Ph.D. thesis was entitled "Estate Maps of Christ Church, Oxford: The emergence of map-consciousness c. 1600-1840." My supervisor was Professor Roger Kain, Professor of Geography. The Ph.D. was awarded in July 1990. From September 1990 to August 1992 I was Tutor in Geography at the University of Exeter. In September 1992 I took up the post of Lecturer in Geography at City of London Polytechnic, subsequently renamed London Guildhall University. In 1998 I became a Senior Lecturer in History having been re-deployed at the same institution
Currently holds a British Academy research grant. The project title is ‘The History of Parish Boundary Records in England: Documents and their Significance.')
