Brief Bio: 

I am a PhD candidate in history at the University of Iowa. My dissertation research focuses on a group of religious women in twelfth and thirteenth century northern France, exploring, through their lives and relationships, questions of space, landscape, and patronage as gendered constructs. Though my area of interest lies in the distant past, I am keenly interested in using modern tools such as digital visualization models to explore that past; in using data synthesizing and mapping tools in my teaching; and in expanding my community of peers through social networking. I grew up in Ireland and received a B.A. in History/Archaeology from Trinity College Dublin (2006) and an M.Litt. in Mediaeval History from the University of St Andrews, Scotland (2008). I have also studied abroad in Germany and in Tanzania. I am the President of the Iowa Forum of Graduate Medievalists, and Secretary-Treasurer of the UIowa Graduate History Society; in both societies, I work to encourage supportive scholarly networks with strong links to the wider community.
