      Research Statement

      In 2016, following the completion and award of my PhD, I took up the position of Research Fellow at the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work. My role involves supporting the internationalisation of Shared Education, particularly in the US and Israel, and to explore the transnational network structures that emerge from such collaboration. This work draws upon learning from my PhD, which focused on the social networks and relational structures that supported teacher collaboration within a Shared Education partnership.

      Before Joining Queen’s University, I began my research career in public sector consultancy providing services to the economic and education sectors in Northern Ireland. These included large scale evaluations, longitudinal surveys, and feasibility studies. I also qualified as a teacher in 2010, which has undoubtedly supported my research in education.

      Research Interests

      My research interests include education in divided societies, organisational change, interschool collaboration and school improvement, although my methodological interest in social network analysis permits me to explore a much broader range of substantive areas, such as Public Health.
