My research interests include women's history, history of sexuality and history of medicine in Ireland/Northern Ireland and I have published widely in these areas. I have delivered talks on my research in Ireland, the UK and internationally and I was the Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Advanced Studies JNU New Delhi in 2018.

We have produced a five part podcast series on the project which is available here. I was the co-author with Professor Sean O'Connell (QUB) of a Department of Health commissioned report on Mother and Baby Homes and Magdalene Laundries in Northern Ireland.
In January 2022 I will begin work on a new AHRC funded project, Queer Northern Ireland: Sexuality before Liberation with Dr Tom Hulme (QUB).
