Currently, I am working as an Assistant Professor at the UCD School of Education. Previously, I have worked in the administration of the European Social Survey in Ireland and served as the coordinator for international statistics at the National Institute for Educational Research and Studies - INEP. I have also held research positions at the University of Bristol, University of Oxford, and University of Brasilia.
