My background lies in history and literature. I am interested in the role of space and place in real and imagined events.
My current research focuses on all aspects of the Irish landed estate in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My interests include social history, local history, the history of family, and historical geography.
As well as using traditional research methods, I employ digital tools and technologies in my work. These include geographical information systems (GIS), databases, social media, and text encoding.
