I was born in Runnymede, London, UK in 1976. I studied at Menston Primary and Bradford Grammar School.

At university, I studied PPE (2:1) at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University. During my PPE course (Politics, Philosophy and Economics), I specialised in:

  • British social history since 1870
  • International relations between the two world wars.
  • Political philosophy
  • Development economics.

I currently live in Oxford. I teach economics part-time and also work on another educational website, Economicshelp.org.

A note about lists

I have made a number of lists, e.g.

I appreciate the order of these lists could be very different, and I may well have missed out many worthy candidates.

  • I don’t aim to be fully comprehensive. See them as a good starting point.
  • Please don’t be offended if I have missed out your favourite person or have the order wrong. The site is a work in progress. I consider myself a student too – always learning about new people.
  • I also appreciate I have a certain bias towards British / American culture – because that is what I know about most. Hopefully, the site will become more comprehensive over time.
  • You are welcome to make suggestions for new biographies, but I can’t guarantee when I will have time to write them.
