Research interests

My research is primarily about developing a new approach to the scribes and codicology of medieval cartulary manuscripts. A book on this topic was published Boydell & Brewer in 2020: Reading and Shaping Medieval Cartularies: Multi-Scribe Manuscripts and their Patterns of Growth. I began my current post at the University of Glasgow in March 2018, but have been at the University since 2008: as an undergraduate (in History), as an MLitt student (in Scottish and Celtic Studies), and as a PhD student.

From 2018 to 2019, I was the Principal Investigator of a Royal Society of Edinburgh-funded project, Researching and Curating Active Manuscripts: Scotland’s Medieval Cartularies. This was a collaboration with the National Records of Scotland and National Library of Scotland, and looked at the current challenges and opportunities for curating and researching medieval cartulary manuscripts.

From 2014 to 2017, I was part of an AHRC-funded project, Models of Authority: Scottish Charters and the Emergence of Government, 1100–1250 (PI Prof. Dauvit Broun). The project’s main outcome was a digital research tool for the study of the contents, script and physical appearance of Scottish charters.

I am currently co-leader of BGE@UniversityofGlasgow (with Prof. Dauvit Broun and Lynne Robertson, Education Scotland). This brings together academics from the College of Arts and school teachers to create new resources based on recent research for use in Broad General Education in the Curriculum for Excellence (the school curriculum for nursery to S3). The scheme has been running since 2014, and has so far produced 14 resources.

I am also a Co-Director of the University of Glasgow's Textual Editing Lab (launched January 2019) with Dr Bryony Randall (English Literature) and Dr Alison Wiggins (English Language & Linguistics).
