I'm a music researcher and educator. In September 2016 I joined the faculty at the Department of Musicology, University of Oslo as Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Before this I held a Visiting Lectureship in Popular Music & New Media at Listaháskóli Íslands | Iceland Academy of the Arts, Reykjavík, and research positions in the Institute of Popular Music, University of Liverpool and St Patrick's College, Dublin City University.

I am on the Editorial Board for the journal Arts. Recent publications have appeared in Postcolonial Text, Popular Music, and Torture: Journal. I am the author of two commissioned reports for the Irish Chamber Orchestra's Sing Out with Strings project (2015 & 2016). I am co-author of the Mapping Popular Music in Dublin Executive Report and The Dublin Music Map with John O'Flynn (2016). Forthcoming contributions include a chapter for the Routledge Companion to Popular Music Analysis: Expanding Approaches and an essay on Beyoncé, Deaf culture, and Sign Language Music Videos.

I'm a founding member of GlasDrum, a not-for-profit multidisciplinary arts organisation. I served on the board of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) UK & Ireland from 2011-2016, and sit on the national executive committee for the Society for Music Education in Ireland.

Current research & commissioned projects include:

- The role of music in contemporary places of detention

- Archiving music: accessing, curating & exhibiting mixed-media materials

- Music Tourism (inc. Ireland, Iceland, & Norway)

- Inclusive music education (inc. Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing)
