Harriet completed a PhD in Economic and Social History at the University of Edinburgh,  and her academic work focuses on  power, authority, law and the state in early modern Scotland, including the implications of ‘statecraft’ for the lives of ordinary people. She has previously worked for the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, submitting a successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a Catalyst Funding Endowment Grant. Along with Professor Julian Goodare (Edinburgh) and Dr Alan R. MacDonald (Dundee), Harriet was the recipient of a Carnegie Collaborative Grant for the project, ‘Agriculture and Teind Reform in Early Modern Scotland'. The project’s first book will be published by Boydell in April 2024. 

Harriet joined the Law School in 2013, previously working for the Global Justice Academy and then the Political Settlements Research Programme (PSRP).  The Peace and Conflict Resolution Evidence Platform, PeaceRep, is a six-year Accountable Grant programme funded by the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. At £19m, PeaceRep is the largest grant in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

Harriet is on the Steering Group for GENDER.ED and PeaceRep, she holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice from Edinburgh, and she is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
