I graduated from Aberdeen with my MA (hons) in 2001 and my PhD in 2008. I have held teaching posts at the University of Dundee, Open University and the University of Aberdeen.
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
- The Wars of the Three Kingdoms 1638-1651.
- The English Commonwealth and Protectorate 1649-1660.
- Print culture in Britain and Ireland during the seventeenth century.
- Scotland's relationship with the wider world.
Currently I am completing my monograph based on my PhD thesis which examines Presbyterians and the Covenants in the 1640s and 1650s.
I am also preparing proposals for two major works on print culture for Routledge. The first is a single authored volume on print culture during the wars of the three kingdoms and an edited volume which examines print culture in its British, Irish, European and Colonial contexts.
I have a developing interest in Anglo-French relations and Franco-Scottish relations in addition to the impact of the Jacobite wars in Britain and Ireland.
I am also currently working on articles on the Western Isles and the Northern Isles of Scotland.
I am a member of the following research networks:
The Franco-British Network for Seventeenth and Eighteenth-Century Research
Pre Modern Diplomats Network.
