I am a Lecturer with the Department of Business Information System at NUI Galway and a Research Fellow with Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre. I enjoy working on industry-led projects, collaborating with our exciting industry and academic partners. I also collaborate with an interdisciplinary team of researchers on various subject matters and technology solutions to deliver strategic advanced research projects for industry partners from design to execution.
In many cases, these collaborative relationships lead to funding and
publishing opportunities. I also worked with the Applied Research for Connected Health (ARCH) Technology Centre, University of Limerick. I was the Data lead within ARCH and largely involved in supporting organisations to achieve their desired business goals.
I previously worked as a Research Associate and lectured at the College of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences, National University of Ireland, Galway. I also taught in the field of Knowledge Management and Information Systems at the University of Limerick both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I took up a role as a postdoctoral researcher at Dublin City University within the Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce (IC4). I spent some time as a researcher in University of Technology Delft (TUD), Netherlands working in the field of Serious Gaming to support business strategists.
I hold a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Limerick which focuses on Service Science. My research career has enabled me to work on industry-based research has been with many indigenous Irish companies and multi-national organisations. During my PhD, I also worked on the European Network of Excellence project ‘S-Cube’ – Software Services and Systems (FP7 project). I have numerous publications in refereed journals, conferences, book chapters, and reports. I also completed a Specialist Diploma in Teaching, Learning and Scholarship, a Masters (research) in Business and a Degree in Information Systems Management.
My research is currently focused on large-scale agile transformation. Please check out our current research and feel free to contact me for any additional information or to collaborate on research developments.
