Research Fellow, Trinity Centre for Environmental Humanities, School of Histories and Humanities, Trinity College Dublin.

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher on the NorFish project at the Trinity Centre for Environmental Humanities. I submitted my PhD on the history of Ireland’s marine fisheries in 2020 and continue to conduct research in the area of marine environmental history. My broader research interests are environmental history, digital humanities, and food history. I try to employ an interdisciplinary approach in my research and believe in the use of digital methods to further our understanding of the past. The environmental challenges we face today motivate my research; I believe we cannot adequately face the present without understanding how people interacted with and influenced the environment in the past.
