About me

I hold a Bachelors in Business and Law from University College Dublin, a Bachelor of Civil Law from the University of Oxford, and a LLM from the University of California, Berkeley. I am also a qualified solicitor in the Republic of Ireland, where I formerly practised at a large commercial law firm for a number of years, specialising in technology law. My doctoral research focuses on the role of the individual in EU data protection law, and the assumptions about the capabilities and status of the individual in that context.
