PhD Student - History
I am a fourth year doctoral candidate in history whose research focuses on institutional learning and organisational leadership and culture in the British Army of the Great War. After working as a civil servant for ten year, I completed a BA (Hons) in History with the Open University in 2012. In 2013 I was awarded an MSc by Research (Distinction) for my thesis 'Kilted Canucks: How Scottish Military Identity shaped the 16th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force'. I began my doctoral studies in September 2013 under the supervision of Professor Ewen Cameron and Dr Stuart Allan. I have published in the International Review of Scottish Studies, History Scotland, and the Journal of the Society of Army Historical Research and my first book, Steel and Tartan: the 4th Cameron Highlanders in the Great War was published by Spellmount in 2012.
