I am a lecturer in early modern literature and material culture at the University of Stirling (you can find more about my academic work here).
I am a Scot, but my immediate ancestors are American, Russian, and Baltic-German, and I have research interests in all four areas. Since joining Wikitree I have been particularly focused on growing the site's coverage of the Russian and Baltic-German nobilities in the early modern and modern periods.At present, I am Team Leader of the Baltic-German Team and am always delighted to hear from fellow researchers!
