Cardiff University
Research Fellow - Brexit and UK devolved politics


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 a post-devolution UK. I'm particularly interested in exploring Brexit from a governance perspective, beyond focusing exclusively on what Brexit will mean in legal terms. I have recently been undertaking research into European networks and what Brexit will mean for UK-based actors who currently participate within these. I also have a particular interest in gender and equality. This research builds largely on my PhD thesis on gender mainstreaming in the EU. I continue to pursue my feminist research, including in my Brexit-related projects.
