About Me

I am an author, medieval historian, and educator from the West of Ireland. Following a research Masters from the University of Oxford I was awarded a Carnegie Scholarship to pursue a PhD in History at the University of St Andrews.

After the completion of my doctoral research I was a Research Fellow at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna where I led a project funded by the Austrian Science Fund and was a team member on Austrian and European Research Council projects.

I am the author and editor of five books and my work has featured in The Irish Times, The Vienna Review, and in leading international scholarly journals. I am currently a Research Fellow in the School of Religion at Trinity College Dublin. In 2021 I was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to Harvard University where I was a Visiting Fellow for the Academic Year 2021-’22. I was invested as a Knight of Malta in 2022.

I am a mentor with the Carnegie Future Leaders programme of current PhD Carnegie Scholars and am developing research management software for PhD students. Find out more at: pagexpage.com
