After completing my BA (Mod.) in German and French at Trinity College Dublin, I spent a year studying critical theory at the University of California (Irvine) before completing my doctorate at the University of Oxford (Wolfson College). After two more years working as a lectrice at the University of Paris-Nanterre (Paris X), I took up a Lectureship at the University of Exeter in the UK.I spent three very happy years there before deciding to return to Dublin to work at UCD.
