Research Focus

My thesis is entitled "the influence of interest groups operating in Northern Ireland on the outcome of the Ireland/Northern Ireland dimension of the United Kingdom's European Union withdrawal negotiations" and examines the mobilisation and influence activities of interest groups in Northern Ireland. My work sits at an intersection of public policy and administration, interest representation, and European studies. It is fully funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) through the Northern Ireland and North East (NINE) Doctoral Training Partnership.


I have taught on PAI1007: Perspectives on Politics which examines key issues and debates defining contemporary political theory. It focusses on three interrelated themes: democracy; the relation between the individual and society; and the legitimacy of the State. I have also given a guest lecture on Social Network Analysis on the module 7001: Approaches to Research Design.
