On Research Leave (Semester 1)



I joined St Andrews in 2019 after three years at the University of Kent, where I was Senior Lecturer in Sixteenth-Century British History and co-Director of the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies. Before that I held a Junior Research Fellowship at Homerton College, University of Cambridge (I also received my PhD from Cambridge in 2010). In 2011-12 I was the Fulbright Robertson Visiting Professor of British History at Westminster College in Missouri. I have held visiting research fellowships at the Huntington Library in California, at the University of Aberdeen and the University of Edinburgh's Institute for the Advanced Study of the Humanities. 

Research areas

I am a historian of sixteenth-century Scotland with interests in political history broadly defined, ranging from Parliament and the Privy Council to propaganda and poetry, and in Scotland's relations with England and France.
