After his undergraduate in Physics with Astrophysics at Trinity College Dublin he moved into conservation science by studying for MSc in Professional Conservation at Cardiff University. Following a short placement at the National Library of Ireland he was awarded a year-long ICON/HLF Internship in Modern Materials at the Victoria and Albert Museum that was then extended by six months with help from The Gabo Trust. He is currently undertaking a PhD at the SEAHA Center for Doctoral Training at University College London. His research focuses on using solid-phase microextraction (SPME) GC-MS for the analysis of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from polymeric artworks within museum collections.
