Dr Mulhall’s research focuses on the area of lexicography, which is the study of dictionaries.

Chris is a son of Pauline Mulhall and the late Richard Mulhall of Willsgrove, Athy, he has seven siblings and according to himself, there are “too many to mention!”

The lexicography link in Chris’ career comes from his PhD studies in University College Dublin in which he researched the treatment of idioms in historical and modern bilingual Italian-English Dictionaries.
