If elected to the Seanad, here is a snapshot of where my priorities will lie:

  1. An evidence-based approach to tackling the issues of the day: housing, health, pensions, childcare and climate.
  2. Making science central to resolving the climate and biodiversity crises.
  3. Advocating for a fully independent Chief Scientific Adviser to the Government.
  4. Securing increased funding for discovery research.
  5. Working with higher education institutions to improve Ireland’s university rankings.
  6. Working to establish a science museum for Ireland.
