Currently working as Head of Research and Development at the Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice, she has been a technical adviser on environment, development and climate change issues for over 14 years.

Dr Shine previously worked for CMRC from October 2009 when she was awarded EPA research fellowship as part of the Climate Change Research Programme. This research looked at policy related to adapting to climate change in Ireland and internationally with a focus on informing emerging policy in this field and ensuring policy coherence.
