Additional information

I completed my PhD in French Studies at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. My doctoral thesis was entitled 'Textualising Travel in André Gide and Henri Michaux' and was funded by the Irish Research Council (formerly IRCHSS). Before that, I undertook a BA (Hons) in English Literature and French at Trinity College Dublin, as well as an M. Phil in Textual & Visual Studies (French) also at Trinity College Dublin, completing an Erasmus semester at the Université de Paris 7, France.

I was a postgraduate teaching assistant at Trinity College Dublin 2006-2007, 2007-2008, 2010-2011 and Sept-Nov 2012, before taking up a lecturing post at St. Patrick's College Drumcondra, DCU, Ireland, Nov 2012-June 2013.

In 2011-2012, I was a maître de langue at the Université d'Orléans, France.  

From 2012-2015, I was a Senior Research Associate at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. I was a Lecturer in French at the University of Toronto at Scarborough, Canada from 2013-2015. In June 2015, I was a Visiting Fellow at the School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics at the Australian National University, Canberra, followed by a year as a Visiting Research Fellow at the Department of French at Trinity College Dublin.
