In 2001 I completed a BA in Early Irish and History at MaynoothbUniversity, where I continued with a PhD in Early Irish (2006). I subsequently carried out postdoctoral work (2006-2009) as a research assistant on the IRC funded Monasticon Hibernicum project and as an O’Donovan Scholar in the School of Celtic Studies at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies.
From 2010 to 2017 I was Principal Investigator on the Ogham in 3D project based at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, funded (2012-2015) by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht in collaboration with the National Monuments Service and the Discovery Programme. I returned to Maynooth University and the Department of Early Irish in 2019 as an occasional lecturer and as a postdoctoral researcher on the Chronologicon Hibernicum project funded by the European Research Council. Since May 2021 I have been Co Investigator (with PI Prof. David Stifter) on another digital project (EMILI - Early Medieval Irish Latinate Inscriptions) funded by a RIA Nowlan Digitisation Grant 2021.
I am currently also the Irish postdoctoral researcher on the collaborative OG(H)AM project between Maynooth University and the University of Glasgow, funded jointly by the IRC and AHRC and running until July 2024.
