Biography

My work focuses on European Integration and the EU institutions and, specifically on the process and politics of the EU's Enlargement policy. I am currently finishing a monograph which examines the EU's role in the Western Balkans and have also been working recently on a project examining the role of the European Commission in the post-accession process in Bulgaria and Romania. I also work on the Irish relationship with the European Union and will publish a number of pieces on Brexit and its implications for Ireland in 2017.
