I am a lecturer in Business Information Systems at the National University of Ireland, Galway. In my current role, I research the dynamics of software development, with a particular focus on technology-based innovation and creativity. I also teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses in application development and write for scientific publications. Before joining NUIG, I completed a PhD, an MBS, a HDip and a BA at University College Cork, Ireland. I was also involved in setting up and running an educational project called All About Africa and I have experience in creating and running a small business.
