Having initially studied Applied Languages and built a career in Finance, I made the decision in 2007 to pursue a career in archaeology and began studying for a BA in Archaeology with UCD. followed by an MA in 2010-2012. Following a 6month internship as a Local Authority Archaeologist with the City Archaeologist at Dublin City Council, I then commenced a PhD with UCD School of Archaeology in 2013 (funded by an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship), awarded 2020. This research examined early medieval settlement in Roscommon, Leitrim and Monaghan using remote sensing techniques (lidar & geophysical survey). During this time, I tutored within the School of Archaeology in addition to giving occasional lectures. I was also involved in several research projects, both as a geophysical surveyor and excavator. I worked as a geophysical surveyor in the commercial sector for 3.5years, undertaking geophysical survey at a range of sites throughout the country, spanning multiple archaeological periods. I am currently working with The Discovery Programme as a Project Archaeologist on the TII ALS Machine Learning Project/ARIADNEplus Project. My main research interests include early medieval Ireland, archaeological landscapes, remote sensing (in particular lidar, geophysical survey, aerial photography), GIS, settlement and society in early medieval Ireland.
