|Areas of expertise||
My primary area of expertise is Anglo-Irish relations and history in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Additionally, I have specialist knowledge in a number of auxilliary areas including the history of the Anglo-Norman Invasion of Ireland; the interactions between the various peoples of medieval Ireland and Britain; and the intellectual thought which influenced the represention of foreigners within the contexts of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
Aside from my research on the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, I have completed extensive archival work on Henry Sheares (1753–1798) and John Sheares (1766–1798), United Irishmen and barristers who were executed for high treason on 14 July 1798.
