Having completed her LLB Law and French from Cardiff University in 2011 and her LLM in European Law from the University of Edinburgh in 2013 she worked in the European Parliament for 3 years before returning to Wales. She spent 9 months working as Press and Political Officer at the European Commission’s office in Cardiff in the period immediately after the referendum on the UK’s membership.
Returning to academia she worked with Dr Jo Hunt on the return of EU competencies post-Brexit. She is now working on the ‘Between Two Unions’ project with Dan Wincott and Greg Davies, focusing on the constitutional implications of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. She is also looking at the effect of Brexit on devolution and Wales, and is particularly interested in inter-governmental and inter-parliamentary relations.
