I am currently on secondment to the President’s Office with responsibility for leading the institutional process for the design and delivery of the next Strategic Plan (2023-2028).

My role as Director of Postgraduate Academic Programmes in the Graduate Studies Office is to lead the office’s activities to support the academic development of postgraduate programmes and the postgraduate portfolio, and from 2020-22, manage the postgraduate admissions and recruitment functions. Before joining Maynooth University, I was Senior Lecturer in Celtic Languages and Director of the Celtic Section at Uppsala University, Sweden (2012-2018), and Director of Studies at the Dept of English, Uppsala University, from 2016-2018. Prior to this, I also spent ten years in the School of Irish, Celtic Studies and Irish Folklore, University College Dublin, as a student, researcher and lecturer, specialising in nineteenth-century Irish language literature and manuscript culture.
