After completing a BA in History and German in University College Cork, I finished my PhD in medieval history in 2001, having divided my doctoral research between University College Cork and Universitat Konstanz, Germany. Following an Irish Research Council post-doctoral award, I completed a Higher Diploma in Archival Studies in University College Dublin. I spent a year working in the Irish Jesuit Archives before joining the staff of the School of History in 2005. Since this time, I have worked with colleagues to introduce a range of archives and records management programmes at certificate, masters and doctoral level. My teaching and research interests reflect the two strands of my academic and professional life with modules and publications in both archivistics and medieval history. I work closely with archival professionals on both professional committees and collaborative projects. I also enjoy working occasionally as an archival consultant, particularly in the context of religious archives. I am currently the Head of Subject for Archivistics and am the Director of the MA in Archives and Records Management programme. Current and past doctoral supervisions: Rebecca Grant: 'Archiving Research Data' (2014-current). Michael Reilly: 'Agricultural Memory and Archives: The National Soil Survey of Ireland' (2013-2018). Kirsten Mulrennan: 'Issues in Archiving Historic Medical Records in Ireland' (2009-2013)
