I am pursuing a Master of Science in World Heritage Conservation at University College Dublin. My research interests include heritage policy, conservation, and the role migration plays in our use of the world cultural and natural heritage, especially at UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Do heritage properties contribute to safeguarding cultural identity in times of large scale human migration? How have past migrations impacted the ways we protect heritage? Are UNESCO World Heritage Sites responding to current European migration patterns?
I am a member of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies and the Council for European Studies.
