I am the 23/24 Editor-in-Chief of The Glasgow Guardian alongside Jeevan Farthing. In previous years I have been Deputy Editor-in-Chief and Features Editor.

What I cover

I have written most extensively during my time at the paper on politics and social issues, and as a postgraduate student of Gender History I’m particularly interested in covering issues pertaining to gender relations. I predominantly write for the Comment and Profile sections, and particularly enjoy interview style journalism, and the opportunities it provides for connecting with people and storytelling. Outwith the paper, my research has focused on former mining communities in the North of England and the strike action of the 1980s.
