About Me

I am a lecturer in Information Systems and Organisation in the School of Business at University College Dublin. In my current role, my research investigates the relationship between emerging technologies, including social media, social networks & immersive environments, and human cognition. There are two main strands to the work. The first strand investigates the impact of emerging technologies on knowledge creation and decision making practices in firms. The second strand investigates the impact of emerging technologies on the temporal characteristics and dynamics of organisational activities. In 2014, my work was nominated for the Claudio Ciborra award at ECIS. I completed a PhD, an MBS, a HDip and a BA at University College Cork, Ireland.

I supervise research in several areas at UCD’s Smurfit Business School. If you are considering a doctoral programme and are interested in these areas of research, don’t hesitate to contact me.

I teach a variety of courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level that span the full spectrum of the IS curriculum, including IS Strategy and Innovation, IS Management and Project Management, IS Technologies, Application Development (with Java and C#), Web Design and Development, Web Analytics, Electronic Commerce, and Contemporary Issues in IS Research.
