I completed a thesis on literary representations of King Malcolm III Canmore (r. 1058-93) in Scottish historical narratives at the University of Guelph (2018).

My research interests lie broadly in historiography produced in the British Isles during the medieval period, and in the construction of identities according to political, social and cultural circumstances. I am also interested in kingship, chivalry and knighthood, hagiography, maps and chronicles, and book history and paleography. As a Scottish historian, I am concerned also with intersections of Scottish identity and artistic production, presenting a paper on Alexander McQueen’s notion of Scottishness at the Guelph Scottish Studies Colloquium in 2019. Lastly, I have longstanding interests in book history and bibliography, especially the transmission of Scottish material in Spanish books.

I have also worked on several special collection exhibitions and digital humanities projects in Canada, and I worked as Curator of Rare Books of La Casa del Libro Museum-Library in San Juan Puerto Rico (2013), where I was tasked with updating the collection’s inventory and the Museum’s exhibition and activities schedule.
