I hold a PhD from McMaster University, where I wrote a dissertation on Seamus Heaney and Thomas Kinsella. I was hired at the University of Alberta in 2001 as a specialist in the area of Irish Studies.
My current research focuses on representations of space and environments in modernist literature. I also have an interest in the nineteenth-century Irish press and the formation of Irish nationalism during that period.
I teach courses in Irish literature at the graduate and undergraduate level. I also teach a 200 level course on postcolonialism and another on textuality.
