Professional biography

I joined the History Department at The Open University in June 2015. Before that, I lectured on a part-time basis at University College Dublin for the School of History and Archives and also worked in further education as Assistant Co-ordinator of the National Print Museum Culture & Heritage Local Training Initiative. 

Research interests

I am interested in political culture in eighteenth-century Ireland. My PhD research looked at print and party politics in Ireland from 1689 - 1715. I am currently carrying out research on the representative system in eighteenth-century Ireland, focussing on evidence related to controverted elections.

Teaching interests

At The Open University I have been on the module teams for AA100, A105, A200 and the taught MA in History. I have recently contributed two units to A225, the new Level 2 history module on modern British and Irish history. 

I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2016.
