My PhD was undertaken with the Irish and Scottish Studies Programme at the Stout Centre at VUW, developing a database of Scottish migrants arriving in New Zealand between 1840 and 1920. Both my PhD and my post-doc (at the University of Guelph) have made use of databases, and I have recently begun to dabble with GIS. My long term research goal is a population register of 1881 New Zealand (in lieu of the destroyed census returns).
