I am a writer, teacher and scholar of art and communication. I write poetry, art-writing, essays, academic prose and fiction. I’ve exhibited, performed and curated nationally (IMMA, NCAD Gallery, Highlanes Gallery, West Cork Arts Centre) and internationally (HDLU Zagreb, PS1 New York, Tate Modern) since 2007. My work has been published in The Stinging Fly and Bath Magg.
I am co-founder of — The Writing Workshop with Jessamyn Fiore; Difference Engine with Mark Cullen, Gillian Lawler and Wendy Judge; and the Orthogonal Methods Group with Prof. Linda Doyle at CONNECT, Trinity College Dublin.
I am creator and facilitator of Engineering Fictions (2013-present) and Stranger Fictions (2016-2018).
I was awarded my Doctorate (2011-2015) from CTVR/CONNECT, Trinity College Dublin, in 2016. I continued as a postdoctoral researcher with the Orthogonal Methods Group at CONNECT until 2018, when I was awarded an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship with Prof. Rob Kitchin and the Building City Dashboards team at MUSSI (2018-2021). This research explored how poetic fiction can be used to parse the academic worlds of networked digital technologies, such as internet of things and smart cities.
I am currently Asst. Lecturer in Critical and Contextual Studies at Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT).
