I’m a historian based in Victoria, Australia. This blog brings together my work on the Scottish diaspora since 2009. You’ll also find many short articles I’ve written for The Scottish Banner since 2010.
I have researched and written widely on the historical relationships between Scotland, Australia, and the British Empire. I have been particularly interested in Scottish social networks, business connections, migrations, and culture in the diaspora. My book, The Scots in Australia, 1788-1938, was published by Boydell & Brewer in November 2017.
I am currently researching the contribution of Scottish trade, enterprise, and investment to the development of colonial economies. Apart from being a historian of the Scots in Australia, my other research focus is environmental history.
