About me

MSt, DPhil (Oxon.), FSAS.

After completing my MSt and DPhil at Balliol College, Oxford, I was a lecturer at Jesus College, Oxford, and subsequently a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of St Andrews. I joined the University of Stirling in 2016.

Award

Katharine Briggs Award Short List, 2017

My first monograph, "The Antiquary", was short-listed for the Katharine Briggs Award in 2017.

British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow
University of St Andrews

I was funded by the British Academy to undertake a three-year research project based at the University of St Andrews with the title "Writing Scotland: Antiquarianism, Confessionalism, and National Identity in Early Modern Europe". The fruits of that research are now forthcoming as a monograph from Oxford University Press under the title, "The First Scottish Enlightenment".
