Current interests are focused on the European Union - notably its constitutional development, institutions and decision making, external relations and enlargement. Inevitably much current work is focused on the process and potential implications of Brexit, the form that a new UK-EU relationship might take, and the consequences of Brexit for the EU and for Northern Ireland and Ireland.
