I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Oregon. I am on leave for the 2017-18 academic year, which I will spend as a visiting researcher at the European Union Program at Princeton University.
My research interests are in comparative and international political economy, with a particular focus on the developed democracies. I am currently working on a book manuscript based on my doctoral thesis, in which I examine the political economy of working time and how this shapes contemporary class and gender inequalities a well as the politics of redistribution. My research has been supported by, among others, the National University of Ireland, the Embassy of France in the United States and the Center for European Studies at Harvard.
I received my PhD in 2017 from the Department of Political Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I previously received a BA (International) in History and Politics from University College, Dublin and an MSc in Comparative Politics from the London School of Economics. I also worked at the Economic and Social Research Institute in Dublin.
