In September 2008, I took up the position of Professor of Architecture at UCD, and from September 2009 am also Dean of Architecture. In 2011 I became Head of the School of Architecture, and more am currently Head of the School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy.My research interests include modern and contemporary architecture in Ireland, the relationship between photography, architecture and built space and the visual culture of cities. My recent publications include the edited volume Architecture 1600- 2000, volume 4 of the RIAi/Yale UP production Art and Architecture of Ireland (2014); a special issue of Architecture and Culture on Architecture and Film, edited with Igea Troiani. Forthcoming are an edited book on Architecture Filmmaking (also with Igea Troiani) to be published by Intellect in 2018, and a book Space Framed: Architecture, Photography and Built Space, to be published by Lund Humphries in early 2019, which will built upon a sequence of papers and book chapters on this theme. I have supervised and examined numerous PhDs, with current work including research on late nineteenth-century photography, the use of film in architectural education and the work of Jean Prouvé.I have an ongoing interest in curating, and, with Nathalie Weadick, was curator of Ireland's pavilion at the 2008 Venice Biennale. The exhibition, The Lives of Spaces, was also shown at the RIBA in London. I am keen to strengthen connections between teaching, research, exhibition and other forms of dissemination.
