Can help with: Generally open to chat/help with anything in relation to my PhD area. Also happy to chat about my IASP work.

What’s essential to your well-being? Trying new things and going to new places as often as I can. Painting, creating and the satisfaction of making something from scratch. I also love the outdoors and the gym and meeting up with friends and spending time with my family in the lovely countryside Ireland has to offer!
