Hello and Goodbye!

The start of the academic year normally sees new staff arriving in the School and, sadly, some departures.

Over recent months we have welcomed Dr Ellen O’Carroll as a Postdoctoral Researcher on Meriel McClatchie’s FoodCult project, Dr Fabienne Pigierre as a Research Scientist on Dr Jessica Smyth’s Passage Tomb People and most recently, Dr Vana Orfanou as Research Scientist on Assoc Professor Barry Molloy’s The Fall of 1200 BC. We welcome all three to the School.

At the same time, we say goodbye to Michaela MacDonnell, Administrator for The Fall. Michaela is moving to a new opportunity. At the end of this month we will also say goodbye to Dr Ben Elliott whose IRC Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship finishes. Ben is moving straight into a new and exciting Postdoc in the UK. We thank Ben and Michaela for their contribution to the School and wish them luck in the future.
