Additional information

I hold a 0.5 contract as lecturer, specialising in Scottish onomastics (the study of names), based partly within Celtic & Gaelic (School of Humanities) and partly within English Language & Linguistics (School of Critical Studies). Within the latter I am Co-Investigator on the Leverhulme Trust funded 3-year project Recovering the Earliest English Language in Scotland: the Evidence of Place-Names (REELS), start-date January 2016, which aims to use place-names to investigate the Northumbrian dialect of Old English and its development into Older Scots.
