Research interests

My research is mainly focused on seventeenth century and early eighteenth century Scotland, including the following research areas:

The 1707 Act of Union.

I have published on all of these topics. My work has been published in France, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and the USA. My research on the pre-1707 Scottish Parliament has been published in the specialised publications of The French National National Assembly and the Parliaments of Catalonia, Poland and Portugal respectively. I have a leading role in the International Commission for the History of Representative and Parliamentary Institutions (ICHRPI) as the editor of the Commission's journal Parliaments, Estates and Representation published by Taylor and Francis.
