Before starting my lectureship at UCD, I taught German at the University of Manchester, where I completed my AHRC-funded PhD; the University of Chester; the University of Limerick; and NUI Galway, where I was also a Moore Fellow. During my doctoral studies, I received the University of Manchester President's Doctoral Scholar Award, which is awarded to the top 3% of prospective research candidates across the University.
