|Areas of expertise||
My primary area of research is representations of Ireland and the Irish in the British Isles during the Middle Ages. 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 the medieval British Isles; 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-century British Isles, I have completed extensive archival work on the lives and times of Henry and John Sheares, United Irishmen and barristers who were executed for high treason on 14 July 1798.
