About Me

I am a PhD candidate at Trinity College Dublin researching the medicalisation of death in the Dublin workhouses in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I received my B.S. in History and Museum Studies from Towson University and my MPhil with Distinction in Modern Irish History from Trinity College, Dublin. In 2018, I presented my MPhil research on the South Dublin Union’s response to the smallpox epidemic of 1871-3 at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI) as a finalist for the Kirkpatrick History of Medicine Award. I co-curated the Little Museum of Dublin’s new exhibition on Victorian Medicine.
