I became a qualified social worker in 2004 in Cork, Ireland, and my career has taken me to various countries around the world. In 2015, I achieved my Doctor of Social Work degree from the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom. Following that, I held positions at the University of Gothenburg from 2015 to 2019 and have been working at the University of Malmö since 2019
