I am just commencing my first of 3.5 years on the NINE DTP as a politics student in the School of History, Anthropology, Politics and Philosophy at Queen’s University Belfast. My PhD research will focus on the impact of “Brexit” on the political and constitutional development of Northern Ireland.

I previously studied at Newcastle University for my undergraduate degree before completing an MA in comparative ethnic conflict at QUB. In between times I have also spent a few years working in various offices in the political sphere and public sector including in Westminster, Brussels and sunny Belfast.
