In the course of 2020, I made the decision to shift my focus to independent research and consultancy work. I look back on a productive and very enjoyable career as a university-based researcher and lecturer with more than twenty publications in international peer-reviewed journals, too many conference papers and presentations to count as well as seminars and lecture courses in Dublin, Hamburg, Kilkenny and Maynooth. I have researched, taught and published on a wide range of topics from Brexit and cross-border cooperation landscape imaginaries and nature conservation at the Wadden Sea coast. Please find further details of my experience and qualifications here and previous and current projects here.
I look forward to new challenges and opportunities to work more intensively with practitioners and policy-makers on joint collaborative projects and as an external advisor, whether in northern Germany, Ireland, at the European level or further afield.
I am available for consultancy work across the following thematic areas:
