Teaching and Research Interests

I am interested in late mediaeval and early modern social, religious and economic history. My recently submitted doctoral thesis focused on the impact of the Scottish Reformation on the burgh of St Andrews. I am currently researching the expansion in the estates of St Andrews’ religious institutions during the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.
