About Me

Danielle’s research focuses on barriers to participation in politics experienced by women from the Protestant, Unionist, and/or Loyalist community. This research will aim to determine whether factors specific to women in PUL communities create additional barriers to participation in politics, formal and informal, and if other factors beyond the ethno-national split such as age and location are also having an effect.

Danielle received her undergraduate degree LLB in Law and Politics at Queen’s University Belfast in 2007. She continued at QUB to attain the Certificate in Professional Legal studies from the Institute of Professional Legal Studies, qualifying as a solicitor in 2009. Danielle also completed a PgDip in Human Resource Management in 2013 at Ulster University.
