I currently teach in the History Department, Royal Holloway College, University of London. My research interests are focussed upon the history of ideas from the 1650s to the 1800s. Of particular interest are the lives and thought of Thomas Hobbes, Baruch Spinoza, Charles Blount, John Toland and Matthew Tindal.  My own ongoing research project is a history of the cultural crisis at the start of the eighteenth century (see Toland). I have a side interest in the history of epidemic disease in seventeenth century London. An online collection can be found at  epidemics . An interview I undertook as part of a drama-documentary based on some of this research can be found at  C4 Plague Fire Treason . Another programme on Radio 4 in the series Voices of the Powerless, recorded with Melvyn Bragg and the historian Paul Slack can be heard by using this link Plague
