  • Bio
    I am currently working as a policy analyst at the OECD's Development Centre, focusing on how developing countries can leverage the digital economy for sustainable growth. In the past I helped grow Dropbox's EMEA operations from 20-160 people in Dublin. I am generally interested in the use of technology to solve largescale public problems and would like to expand my skills in this area. I have an MSc in International Politics from Trinity College Dublin and a B.A. in History and Political Science from the same institution. I am a major supporter of Project Firefly's vision and have contributed to its growth through participation in its various competitions. Co-winning the 2013 Young Leaders Competitor provided a real launchpad to my career.
