I was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada! I did my BA (1988-1992) and MA (1992-1993) at the University of Saskatchewan I then did my Ph.D. at Queen’s University ( Kingston , Ontario , Canada ) between 1993 and 1999. Most of my Ph.D. research and writing was carried out at the Juan March Institute in Madrid,Spain, where I lived between 1994-1999. In 1999 I joined the Political Science Department in Trinity College Dublin Since then, I have served as a Visiting Research Fellow in TCD’s Policy Institute (2002-2003), Director of the Political Science Postgraduate Programme (2004-2005), a Research Associate of the Institute for International Integration Studies (IIIS) as well as the Director of the Centre for European Studies (2005-2008).

I am a fan of the Calgary Flames, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Atlético de Madrid, Fernando Alonso, and RUSH!
