My research focusses mainly on environmental governance and agri-environmental issues, particularly within the EU. Specific areas of interest include GM crops, agri-sustainability, environmental principles (including the precautionary principle), multilevel governance and Brexit. I've published on these topics including in the JEL, CMLR, RECIEL, ELR and am co-authoring a book on Brexit and Agriculture currently. I am engaging widely with stakeholders across the UK and Ireland on environmental governance and agriculture in the context of Brexit. Specific publications and policy engagements are visible at
