Biography

I am a post-doctoral researcher in the project 'Chronologicon Hibernicum' in the Department of Early Irish, Maynooth University. The project receives funding from the European Research Council under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, grant agreement No. 647351. Chronologicon Hibernicum develops and use innovative methodologies and technical tools to perform linguistic analysis on a large body of early medieval Irish texts. It aims to profile the development of Old Irish between the 7th and the 9th century with advanced statistic methods.

I received my PhD in early and medieval Irish from University College Cork. My PhD thesis title is 'Narratives in early Irish law tracts', in which I have collected narratives widely from Corpus Iuris Hibernici and studied their features, functions and connections with legal institutions and the learned tradition at large.

From 2014 to 2015 I worked as an O'Donovan Scholar in the School of Celtic Studies, Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, on an critical edition of an Old Irish law tract Din Techtugud.
