About mePost-doctoral researcher deeply interested in eighteenth-century Scottish and American colonial history, WWII and American Civil War studies, digital humanities, archaeology, boxing, and gaming. Narrowly focused on Jacobite studies and currently working on JDB1745, a prosopographical database for scholarly research on the constituency of the conflict.
