About me

I joined the Open University in 2012 as Research Associate in Digital Humanities. Previously, I worked  for University College Dublin and the National University of Ireland, Galway. My role within the Open University is to develop research in Digital Humanities and promote collaboration and networking.

While in UCD, I taught courses on digital humanities and collaborated with the Irish Virtual Research Library and Archive (IVRLA) on integrating digital resources and teaching. In NUI Galway, I worked with the Thomas Moore Archive, a project of the Moore Institute, NUI Galway, of which I am joint editor.  For the TMA I developed a digital edition of a selection of Thomas Moore’s prose writings, and designed the web interface of the project.

My research interests are digital humanities (especially digital scholarly editions and text encoding), the writings of Thomas Moore (1779-1852), and nineteenth-century periodicals, with a focus on the role of Irish periodicals and newspapers in Irish cultural nationalism.
