I studied Archaeology at University College Dublin where I completed my BA and MA in Prehistoric and Experimental Archaeology in 2014. I have a particular interest in craftsmanship and embodied cognitive approaches to tool use, which I have personally explored through archery and bow-making.

I have recently submitted my PhD thesis in partnership with the University of Exeter and the University of Reading. My research investigates the evidence, use and performance of stone-tipped spear technologies among Neanderthal populations in the European Middle Palaeolithic.

I am a student at St. Mark's School in Southborough, Massachusetts. From the age of eight, I lived in Hancock, Massachusetts in the Berkshire Hills where I developed an early interest in archery. This led to an interest in the technologies of early humans.
