I hold a B.A. in English Literature and Ancient History and Archaeology from Trinity College Dublin and a M.A. in Aegean Archaeology from The University of Sheffield.
I am currently a PhD researcher in the Department of Classics,Trinity College Dublin, where my doctoral project 'Tomb Readers' focusses on the influence of anthropological models on the interpretation of the funerary archaeology of prehistoric Crete. I am also a graduate fellow of the Trinity Long Room Hub, an innovative and inter-disciplinary research institute for the Arts and Humanities.
I have professional experience in archaeological excavation in Ireland and Greece, most recently in eastern Crete at the prehistoric cemetery site of Petras.
My main research interests include the history of anthropology and archaeology in the early 20th century, the ethics of representing prehistoric people and cultural attitudes to death and dying.
