Biography

I was born in Kerry (Ireland) in 1980 and studied at the University of Limerick. I graduated with a bachelor of business studies in 2003, majoring in economics and finance and doing a minor in econometrics. I continued my studies at the University of Limerick, graduating with a PhD in 2007 and remaining as a post-doctorate research fellow with the university until January 2010. Since that time I have held the position of lecturer in economics at Bournemouth University.

My research interests are cross-disciplinary, encapsulating areas of economics and employee relations. More specifically, my research focuses on public-sector economics, theory of the firm, public-sector industrial relations, employee share-ownership, and employee psychology. I have published a number of papers relating to the impact of privatisation and employee share-ownership on employee attitudes and commitment in the workplace.
