A graduate of the University of Oxford, where I read Modern History and gained MA and DPhil degrees, my professional career was spent in academic librarianship, latterly (2001-06) as Director of Scholarship and Collections at The British Library. Additional career details appear in my entry in Who's Who.
I currently hold honorary academic posts at both the University of Birmingham and the University of Manchester. I am a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a Fellow of the English Association and am a member of the executive and editorial committees of the Wesley Historical Society, as well as its bibliography editor.
I have researched and published widely in the social history of religion in Great Britain from 1689 to the present day and am a particular authority on (a) religious statistics and (b) the history of Methodism. I have been co-director of, and principal author for, the British Religion in Numbers website since its inception in 2010 - see http://www.brin.ac.uk
