I am an academic and blogger from Ireland, living and working in Belfast.

My central interest is in how we adopt social and societal roles and the impact these have on our identity and wellbeing. I teach social science and quantitative methods.

I write blogs to explore ideas and process current events- and because it’s fun.

This site is divided into academic work and general interest material. I hope you find something that interests you and that you’ll get in touch.
