I am an internationally recognised historian of Germany, with particular expertise on Germany's transitions from Nazism after 1945 and East German communism after 1989.  I am an Associate Professor in German and European Studies in the School of Humanities and Languages at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. I studied History and German Studies at the universities of Sydney and Potsdam and have a PhD in History from the University of Sydney. I have held funded fellowships at the Centre for Contemporary History in Potsdam, the European University Institute in Florence, and at the universities of Constance and Cologne. I previously taught in the International Studies program at UTS and have been at UNSW since 2008.
