I hold a PhD in Film Studies (2015) from Trinity College Dublin, where I also completed an MPhil in Film Theory and History (with Distinction) and a first class BA (Hons.) in Economic and Social Studies. My studies at Trinity were supported by an Ussher Fellowship (2011-2014) and a foundation Scholarship (2007-2013).
In August 2018, I joined the School of Creative Arts at Trinity College Dublin as an Assistant Professor in Film Studies, with a specialism in digital theory and practice.
Prior to joining TCD I lectured for two years at the Department of Film Studies at the University of St. Andrews (2016-18). I have also taught at Maynooth University (2015-2016) and in the Huston School of Film & Digital Media, National University of Ireland, Galway (2015).
My PhD thesis made a critical intervention into film dialogue, American independent cinema and reception studies. A monograph based on this research, Engaging Dialogue: Cinematic Verbalism in Contemporary American independent Cinema, was published by Edinburgh University Press in 2018.
My current research is concerned with the intersections between film, television and digital media, as well as those between critical theory and creative practice.
I'm currently working on a book project on Screening Women's Voices, which will examine the representation and reception of female voices in contemporary audiovisual and digital media, with a focus on the remediation of women's pre-recorded voices, as in contemporary memes and podcasts.
