I attended University College Dublin (UCD) from 2005-8, where I completed my BA in history and politics graduating with a 2:1. From 2008-9 I conducted a taught MA in Modern European History also at UCD. I graduated in December 2009 and I am now conducting my my PhD research at Queen's University Belfast.
I am currently conducting my research on Ireland's various response of the Crimean War. My research aims is to further add to the ever increasing interest and study into Ireland in Britain's imperial wars. I am fascinated by the Victorian period and British imperial history as a whole. I am endeavoring to learn more about the role Ireland played in the wider British imperial experience.
