My current research is on the political impacts of climate-related natural disasters. My broader interests are environmental and climate change politics, European, and African politics. I am a founding member of the EUI Environmental and Climate Politics Working Group and I co-organise the EUI Occasional Political Economy Seminar Series. I am also actively engaged with the Climate Pipeline Project and CEGA Working Group on African Political Economy.
I hold a BA in European Studies from Trinity College Dublin and an MA in EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies from the College of Europe in Bruges.
