College Lecturer in Teaching & Learning Enhancement, University College Cork

My expertise is in philosophy of education, value theory, the philosophy of Immanuel Kant, and political theory.

I publish in the area of human character and values (in particular hope), education and inclusion. The focus of my published (and forthcoming) work is on the position of women and children within society. I have published on the inclusion of children in the context of education and health.

At UCC, I lecture on topics including education, moral responsibility and political theory. Prior to my work at UCC, I held a research fellowship at the University of Birmingham, where I researched character education.

My PhD research (the London School of Economics) examined the idea of connection we hold to all others, regardless of whether they share with us nationality/citizenship etc. This research proposed a Kantian idea of moral agency as a framework for understanding how we are connected as human beings.
