Biography

In my current role I lecture across both undergraduate, postgraduate levels. My teaching practice covers two overarching strands, that is, 1) business marketing and networks, which includes a focus on services, and 2) research methods. I have developed and continue to maintain a strong research profile, with over 50 journal publications and peer reviewed conference proceedings and I have a strong european network in two active research groups (Nord, and Market Studies). I am active member of faculty, contributing to departmental, school and University level activities, including as marketing major option leader, as active member of KBS marketing task force,  and as member of the University Community Engagement Committee. I work extensively on community facing interdisciplinary projects such as the KBS/SAUL 2013 IU project, and the 2014 Health Futures Lab; see http://www.healthfutureslab.org.

Member of the editorial review board Industrial Marketing Management,
I also regularly review for: Journal of Marketing Management, Marketing Theory, journal Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, European Journal of Marketing, International Journal of Arts Marketing, IMP conference, Nord Workshop on Relationship Dynamics

Phd supervision: co-supervised (lead) Winfred I. Onyas to successful completion of her Phd entitled “Performing overlapping markets and product trajectories: an analysis of the coffee global value chain"

Research Interests

Partnering between corporate and nonprofits for innovation
The focus of my phd was the relationship between a corporation and a nonprofit arts organisation. Since then i have been interested in how both parties can learn from each other to co-create solutions that would not be possible on their own. A logical extension of this is to consider how partnering between corporations and nonprofit organisation can be a source of innovation. I am beginning a new project in this area which will trace the emergence of innovations in such partnerships; both market and societal based.

market innovation and innovation process
What does it takes to actualize innovation? In this research I consider the multiple actors and actions required to bring about innovation in markets. For example I have been working with W.I Onyas to trace the ongoing efforts instigated by an exporter to bring about, and transform a mainstream market into, a new sustainable market; a market designed to advance ecological and social sustainability goals. In a paper published in Industrial Marketing Management, we draw attention to the diverse and heterogeneous composite – a socio-technical agencement – whose transformative connections collectively reconfigure and transform the mainstream market into a sustainable market. The paper illustrates the ongoing character of market innovation and reveals the agencing work involved in bringing about the agencement and capacitating agencies to realize market innovation. I plan to continue work in this area, with particular attention to be given to the role of design and multidisciplinary teams in actualising innovation in firms.

Network effects: The role of Cities of Culture in building an art sponsorship/corporate engagement sector at a regional level

In this research project I am examining how Cities of Culture Programmes shape and capacitate corporate engagement with the arts at a regional level. Given the growing significance of CoC programmes as a method for economic regeneration, it is important that we understand fully how to effectively use these programmes to develop a strong base for corporate engagement in the arts. By conducting empirical research on Limerick’s National CoC, this research will result in a) development of an arts-business-academic network via proposed research advisory group and b) a stakeholder conference, and c) discussion document to be published online. The work will also be published in a high ranking peer reviewed journal.
