Research Interests

My research specialises in the area of international management / strategy and more specifically the networks and knowledge flows that influence and are influenced by the dual embeddedness of multinational company subsidiaries, based in Ireland. The dynamics of local clusters and the ecosystem that is continuously evolving in the medical technology sector of the West of Ireland is of particular interest, as is the HQ-subsidiary relationship.  

I have recently been successful in getting published along with my co-authors in 4* British Journal of Management. Along with other co-authors, we have two other papers under review at the 3* International Business Review and the 4* Human Relations journals.

My strategy in the short to medium term is to bolster existing data for an agenda we are pursuing. Other International Business journals such as Journal of World Business, Journal of International Business, and Journal of International Management will be targeted for submission of future work.

I am extremely attentive to the impact and influence of my research on public policy. I am currently in discussions with IDA for the agency to learn from, and help guide, our future research plans. Representing NUIG, I am also currently co-developing a proposal with SCCUL Enterprises for an EU INTERREG grant, which is looking positive.  Continued b
uilding and collaborating with my network of academics and practitioners will be key to the success of my research strategy.
