The Kennedy Scholarship has really meant the world to me.

I'm a lecturer in Government and Public Policy at the University of Ulster, and an associate staff member of INCORE where I currently hold the 2004-2005 Tip O'Neill Fellowship.

I received my first degree in political science from Queen's University of Belfast in 1994, and hold an MPhil in Middle Eastern Studies from Oxford University.

In 1996/97, I was a Kennedy Scholar at the JFK School of Government and Public Policy, where I specialised in conflict resolution. I completed my PhD on aspects of political leadership during the Northern Ireland peace process 1996-1998, at the University of Ulster in 2005.

The Kennedy Scholarship has really meant the world to me, both academically, in terms of the experts with whom I was able to work at Harvard, and also socially, in terms of the international friendships that have been made and sustained!
