Biography

My first third level studies were in Archaeological Conservation (Institute of Archaeology, University College London). Working as a conservator in Greece, Italy, UK and Ireland helped shape my interests in material culture, which I pursed further by studying archaeology at the universities of Edinburgh (MA) and Liverpool (PhD). In 1995 I was appointed Research Curator of the Classical Museum, UCD, and in In 2006 I was appointed Lecturer in Greek Archaeology, continuing at the same time as Curator of the Classical Museum. 

My research interests are Greek archaeology, especially  the Greek Bronze Age and early Iron Age, and the archaeology of the Ionian islands. I am currently running a multi-period archaeological landscape project on the island of Kephalonia, Greece.
As curator of our museum I have been organizing exhibitions on a large variety of themes with student involvement.
I am also interested in the collections of classical antiquities in 18th and 20th century Ireland, and co-ordinate a project that explores their context and history. During my years as chair of the Irish Institute of Hellenic Studies at Athens (IIHSA) and as School of Classics rep on the Board I have encouraged undergraduate and postgraduate students to experience Greece first hand through the tours, travel bursaries and internships organized by the IIHSA.
