Concentration: Modern Europe | Modern Ireland | War and Peace Studies


Ashley entered the PhD program in fall 2018 after earning her BA from Merrimack College earlier that year. Since being in the program she has also filed for her MA. 

Ashley's research explores areas of "neutrality" during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, choosing to analyze occurrences when people from opposing communities came together for a shared purpose. Through her research, Ashley hope to move beyond the narrative of violence in order to more fully understand the conflict. 

Outside of her research, Ashley's hobbies include: never passing up an opportunity for ice cream, knowing too much about Monopoly, and always starting the wrong running back in fantasy football.
