Biography: 

I joined the Wales Governance Centre in October 2016 to undertake research into Brexit and UK devolved politics. Building on my background in EU politics and governance, I am now addressing questions surrounding the UK's withdrawal from the EU, and the implications this will have for the politics and governance of the UK and the devolved nations.

In particular, I am interested in the following: the differential implications of the UK's withdrawal from the EU across the different nations of the UK (with particular attention to Wales); intra-UK governance both during the Brexit process and post-Brexit; Wales as a distinct actor within the EU, before, during and post-Brexit; as well as remaining attentive to 'the other side of the negotiating table', including the changing nature of the EU.

    The Scottish and Welsh Governments worked together closely during their negotiations with the UK Government over those aspects of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill that related to devolution. Despite ultimately choosing different paths, say Hedydd Phylip and Greg Davies, this spirit of cooperation looks set to continue.
