Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a Lecturer in Geography at the University of Limerick, an e-mentor in GIS at Ulster University and a visiting scholar at QUB. My research uses geospatial technologies and mixed method approaches to analyse and interpret early source material. 

I am currently a J.B. Harley Fellow in the History of Cartography.

I am keen to hear from anyone interested in collaborating on projects related to the historical geography of the early modern, and the digital and spatial humanities.
