I am a historian and lecturer in the United Kingdom. The main focus of my research has been Scottish emigration, including settlement communities abroad and those who chose to remain in Scotland. I am particularly interested in the role of newspapers in public perceptions of migration. I teach a variety of British and American history modules and have a wide range of historical, literary and technological interests.
