About Me

My research revolves around elementary and grammar education in the medieval world (specifically France), focusing on the socio-economic context of schools, pupils, and teachers, as well as the significance of such instruction within local cultures and communities. I am also interested in educational institutions and their intersection with religious and secular authorities. My PhD project (Institute for Medieval Studies, University of Leeds) was about elementary and secondary schools in late medieval France. I also have a B.A. (Hons) in History and History of Art from University College Dublin and a M.Phil. in Medieval History from Trinity College Dublin. My current projects center on educational legacies in late-medieval French wills, education in the global Middle Ages, and the medieval year.
