Research Statement


Drawing on over 25 years of experience in the reporting and analysis of UN negotiations on sustainable development, including consultancy roles with UN Secretariats, I combine research and policy interests in the fields of sustainable development, the commons, and the attention economy. 

My collaborative work with John Woods and the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust led to the creation of Northern Ireland's first high-level roundtable on wellbeing, and to the re-design of the NI Programme for Government (2015) incorporating an outcomes and indicators based framework to measure and achieve societal wellbeing. 

In 2020, in collaboration with Dr Ciara Brennan, Newcastle University, Dean Blackwood, QUB, and James Orr, Friends of the Earth, I founded the Environmental Justice Network Ireland. This is a collaborative platform or 'community of practice' engaging the environmental legal profession, activists and policy makers committed to advancing environmental justice and the SDGs on the island of Ireland.
