Since 2012, Sinead has worked on research projects broadly relating to the lived experiences of policy implementation, and youth cultures, with a focus on access (or lack of) to information, knowledge and resources.

Sinead has also delivered undergraduate seminars on global insecurity and inequality and is keen on social justice and equality-related work.
