My research interests primarily include the field of Jacobite studies. My doctoral thesis is entitled 'Lawful Sovereignty: The Political Criminalisation and Decriminalisation of Jacobitism, 1688–1788'. Other interests include broader social aspects of the Jacobite movement, including court politics, material culture and the lives of the exiled Stuarts.

Aside from this topic, I am also interested in other aspects of Scottish history, particularly within the long eighteenth century, and in Classical Studies with its significant influence upon later epochs in Scottish and British history. I hope to explore these connections in future research.
