Born and raised in Dublin, I hold degrees from the National University of Ireland (BA, MA) and Queen’s University Belfast (PhD). Having previously held lectureships at Queen's University Belfast and the University of Aberdeen, I joined the University of Edinburgh in 2006, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2008, Reader in 2010, and then to Professor of Modern History in 2015.

In 2010 I was the recipient of an Economic and Social Research Council Mid-Career Fellowship, awarded on the basis of a proven track record of excellence in research.

I am the co-ordinator of the Irish History Research Group.
