Biography

I have received a BA (Hons.) Modern European History at University of Ulster and through part-time study a MA from Keele University in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations. I completed my PhD in NUI Galway in 2013 with the assistance of a Government of Ireland PhD Fellowship from the Irish Research Council.

Current research interests are concerned with the regulation of the employment relationship and innovations in workplace management systems. The specific areas of my research are: - employee voice, workplace governance regimes, comparative employment relations and changes in working lives. I have published in leading journals in my field including; Human Relations, Work, Employment and Society and International Journal of Human Resource Management.

My research strategy includes collaborations with leading national and international scholars in my field, both to enhance my writing and research skills while at the same time obtaining greater understandings about work related conceptual themes. This has been reflected in the current research project on behalf of the European Commission which is investigating the impact of the economic crisis on the manufacturing sector in 7 EU countries.

My research trajectory developed from my own PhD studies and involvement in 2 large research projects. The aim of the research is threefold in nature; publishing in leading peer reviewed journals in my field by making a contribution to knowledge, secondly producing work that may have public policy relevance and finally adding to my teaching portfolio with up-to date research-led work.
