BIO

I am a design-studio tutor at the School of Architecture where I also lecture in History and Theory and supervise MArch dissertations. In 2016/17, I was nominated for a UCD Teaching & Learning Award for Teaching Excellence. Following graduation from Bolton Street College of Technology (DIT) I practiced in Berlin and Madrid for ten years before returning to Dublin to work in the field of architectural conservation. In 2008 I completed an MLitt at Trinity College Dublin and was the recipient of the Irish Georgian Society Award for my post-graduate research. I am currently undertaking a PhD on the architectural and urban history of Irish breweries at the School of Art History, UCD. I am one of five editors and principal authors of Architecture 1600-2000, Volume IV of the Art and Architecture of Ireland project, published in 2014 by RIA & Yale University Press. In 2017 I co-edited The Building Site in Eighteenth-century Ireland (Four Courts Press, Dublin) with Dr Edward McParland (TCD). I have been awarded several research grants for my work on Irish architecture and have successfully raised funding for publishing under the Irish Government Policy on Architecture. I have been appointed to the Arts Council of Ireland as a peer assessor (Architecture). This year I was invited to collaborate with Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara (Grafton Architects), Curators of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, Biennale Architettura Venice, FREESPACE, 2018, and I also participated as a contributor to the Irish national pavilion 'Free Market' at the Biennale Architettura Venice, 2018.
