Other Activities

 Description

I helped co-ordinate the GSAI Annual Conference as part of a team in the Department of German at UCC.

In June 2013, I participated in the Creative Mind category in the UCC Doctoral Showcase. I was invited to give a presentation on my PhD-project in the finals. My performance combined a Power point presentation and a puppetry comedy sketch. The aim of the Doctoral Showcase is to encourage University College Cork's research students to develop innovative ways to communicate their research to a non-specialist audience.
