Was 2015 your first IHSA Conference? No; I spoke at Queens University Belfast in 2013 and Mary Immaculate College in 2014.

What attracted you to the IHSA Conferences? As a young academic, I felt the need to start attending academic conferences and have my voice heard. This was naturally coupled with the support of my friends and colleagues at NUIG.

Best memory of the conferences? Giving my first academic paper at a great IHSA in Galway 2012.

What are you looking forward to most about Galway 2016? I won’t be involved in the academic aspect when the Galway conference rolls round, so I’m looking forward to sitting back and listening and meeting people there!
