I was awarded a PhD  by the European University Institute in 2014 and I have worked at University College Dublin, Keele University, and the University of Copenhagen. My research interests include political parties, public policy, the comparative politics of climate change, and Irish politics. Click here for more information on the Irish Policy Agendas Project.
