Research interests

My primary research interest is the toponymy of Britain and Scandinavia, specialising in folk-onomastics and perceptions of names and naming. In recent years I have concentrated on studying the place-names of Uist. Other areas of interest include onomastic theory, the study of anthropo-toponyms (place-names containing a personal name) and linguistic and cultural contacts between Scotland and Scandinavia.

I was part of the Eòlas nan Naomh: Early Christianity in Uist project with Prof. Thomas Clancy (2018-19). Commissioned by Ceòlas Uibhist and funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig, the project aimed to shed light on the nature of medieval Christianity in Uist as visible through place-names.

I am currently working as a Research Associate on the AHRC-funded Iona’s Namescape: Place-names and their dynamics in Iona and its environs project.
