I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto, and went on to complete my M.Phil at Trinity College Dublin, where I am currently undertaking my PhD.

The focus of my research is synchronic language variation in Old Irish, focusing specifically on the Old Irish glosses of Milan, St. Gall and Würzburg with a view to potentially identifying diatopic variation within the Old Irish corpus. My research interests extend far beyond linguistics and into mythology, paleography, codicology, and folk healing and medicine, to name a few
