At Maynooth University, I teach across the BA in Media Studies and the MA in Critical and Creative Media on subjects ranging from television studies to screen production. I coordinate the MA programme and the postgraduate research programmes.
My main research interests are in women’s roles and participation in film, television and media. I have published subjects including horror film and motherhood and the framing of women and women’s interests on television platforms. I am currently preparing a monograph on women’s place in early television. I contribute to the Critical Studies in Television blog (http://cstonline.tv/). My research interests include emergent screen entertainment experiences and technologies and production cultures.
I welcome enquiries from people interested in pursuing scholarly or practice-based PhDs on subjects related to screen media.
