Archivist Dublin City University Ireland Education

I’m an archivist working in Dublin City University Library, with experience in collections management, digital preservation and digital cultural heritage. I’ve been working to connect and engage new ENA members in Ireland and previously worked in the National Archives of Ireland, National Gallery of Ireland, and the National University of Ireland, Galway.

As a councillor, I’ve been chair of the New Professionals Task Force, which worked to better support young and new professionals in the ENA. Our final report was published this year and the ENA is now implementing its recommendations. I’m also co-chair of the Communicators Community and a passionate member of the new Climate Community.
