I am the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Glasgow Guardian.

What I cover

My duties include assisting in the day-to-day management of the paper, our social media strategy, and breaking news stories. In my reporting, I focus on the business of the University, ranging from administrative affairs, to how UofG is reacting to wider economic factors. I also write about politics, including how upcoming political shifts may affect the future of the city of Glasgow.


I have been active in the paper since September 2020, with my last position being Digital Content Editor. I am a fourth-year student in Economic History, in which I have recently been published.
