Our editorial team work incredibly hard to develop the activities, reach and scope of the centre. As well as their role in collaborating with contributors and editing submissions to the centre’s Global History Blog, our team have their own areas of responsibility within the centre and their own research and projects that they are working on. To find out more about them and their interests, see below.

In his research there, he assessed the consequences of the Panama Canal on Argentina’s international economy, 1914-29. He is currently working on an oral history project on the emergence of the specialty coffee industry in Mexico since 2008.
