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! I am also involved with the 100 Circles Project and maintain the free space page for tracking progress on European royal and noble pedigrees on Wikitree.
For more information see my Member of the Week profile from October 2020.
