Biography

I specialise in political theory, constitutional law, law and religion, and the separation of Church and State. In am particularly interested in the legal dimensions of constitutional secularism in France, and in Rousseau's contribution to constitutional thought. I recently published (with Tom Hickey) A Political Theory of the Irish Constitution (Manchester University Press, 2015), and I am currently working on a new book project, Rousseau's constitutionalism: Austerity and republican freedom (Hart publishing).
I studied Law and French as an undergraduate and received a PhD from University College Cork in 2010. My thesis examined how jurisdictions committed to different concepts of constitutional secularism order the competing social claims on the value of religious freedom in schools.
Subsequently I worked as a Lecturer in DCU until 2012, and in University College Dublin until 2014. I joined NUI Galway in February 2014.
