Deborah Thorpe is Education and Outreach Manager for the Digital Repository of Ireland. She has published extensively in the fields of medieval studies, palaeography, and the medical humanities. She has a particular interest in the interdisciplinary humanities, especially research that creates unusual synergies between disciplinary approaches.

Her most recent position prior to joining DRI was as Training and Education Officer for DARIAH-EU. Before that, she was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND Fellow at Trinity College Dublin’s Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute.
