I am a Lecturer in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Limerick. 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, political careers, the comparative politics of climate change, and Irish politics.
