YouTuber. Research Student. Creative Producer. Writer. Presenter.
I create online content in both written and video formats.
I regularly upload to my youtube channel, youtube.com/bookishthoughts, where I chat all things literature, studying, history and political/social issues.
Since September 2016 I have occupied the role of Creative Producer at the UK-based publishing house Pan Macmillan and I am behind our literary video series Book Break, which you can watch at youtube.com/panmacmillanbooks as well as follow on Instagram @bookbreakuk.
In 2016 I also contributed regular political and literary video content to BBC Scotland’s The Social, including an informative series on how to vote. I have also presented videos for BBC Bitesize and appeared as a panelist on BBC Authors Live with Scottish Book Trust.
At the moment I am conducting research related to sexual violence towards women in Classical Athens at The University of Roehampton, in order to attain my PhD. I have completed both an undergraduate and postgraduate degree in classics at The University of Edinburgh. My specialties are Greek literature, Athenian law, sexual violence in Greek myth and the history of women and sex in Classical Greece.
