Accepting Postgraduate Research Students

PhD projects

I would be delighted to hear from any students interested in working on sixteenth-century Scotland, or relations between Scotland, England and France. I would be especially thrilled to hear from you if you want to work on James V.

Personal profile

Research overview

I am a historian of sixteenth-century Scotland. For the academic year 2023-4 I have funding from the Royal Society of Edinburgh for a research project on the Anglo-Scottish wars of the minority of Mary, Queen of Scots, including writing a monograph and delivering workshops on this subject in primary schools and high schools throughout Scotland. If you are a teacher and are interested, please get in touch!

My research interests range politics with a big P (parliaments, monarchs and Scotland's relations with France and England) and a little p (propaganda, resistance and burgh communities). 


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.
