Her BBC documentary 'Side by Side' about a former British army officer making peace with his former IRA foes in South Armagh broke new ground in conflict transformation reporting.
Laura also made a series of documentaries on the experience of prison for political and ordinary prisoners and their families, which was broadcast by the Irish station Newstalk and the BBC.

As well as her media work, Laura has co-created an online archive of audio interviews with older people bereaved and injured through the Troubles for WAVE Trauma Centre.

and sat on the panel of a symposium on Peace Journalism at QUB in 2013.
She also presented a paper on radio and political activism at the University of South Wales where she occupied the post of Senior Lecturer in Journalism.

Laura holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics with French and Hindi from the University of York, Master of Arts in Medieval Studies from Birkbeck College, University of London,
and a Postgraduate Diploma (distinction) in Professional Practice in Higher Education from the University of South Wales.

She has done voluntary work at various times for Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace and Amnesty International and served as a parent governor at Frederick Street School, Belfast (Northern Ireland).

Originally from London, she is currently based in France, works as a translator and teaches at the University of Toulouse.
