About Me

I completed a PhD in History at the Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph in 2019. I specialize in late Medieval Scotland, and my dissertation specifically focuses on Robert Stewart, first Duke of Albany (c.1340-1420) and his family in the climb, maintenance, and ultimate fall from power in fifteenth century Scotland. My research engages with wider themes of absentee authority, monarchical power, family politics, and women and power. I also hold an MA in Medieval History from University College Dublin where my research focused on Scottish alliances during the Wars of Independence. I have a BA in History with minors in International Studies and Women’s Studies from Arcadia University. My undergraduate capstone project and course work during my MA focused on Medieval Irish history.
