My main research interests are in twentieth-century Irish and British poetry. I also have an interest in writing of the First World War and literary modernism.

Research Statement

I am currently working on a study of Robert Graves and Twentieth-Century Poetry, situating Graves's work in a tradition of English poetry from Hardy to Hughes.


I teach primarily in the areas of 19th and 20th century Irish literature, modern poetry - particularly contemporary Irish and British poetry - and modernist literature.
