She is a Fellow of the British Academy and a Foreign Member of the Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters. She serves on the Editorial Board of the journal Past & Present.
Her current research explores how economic, social and even environmental issues took on as much importance as familiar concerns of border protection and weapons’ control in Europe’s search for security after 1918. She is also interested in questions of global order and disorder from ca. 1850 to the present day, and in the history of food law and global governance.
