Biography

My research is concerned with understanding the complexities of the digital world with a focus on the shaping and reshaping of markets. I actively engage in transdisciplinary research and practice. My research funding (€100,000+) demonstrates successful leadership of project managing consortium funded proposals such as the 2016 IRC funded Health Research Futures Lab project. I have published over 25 peer reviewed journal articles (IS 3*/4*) across a transdisciplinary range of journals such as Human Relations, Marketing Theory, Industrial Marketing Management and Journal of Marketing Management. My combined academic and teaching standing internationally is shown through invitations to act as external examiner (Dublin Business School, Edinburgh University Business School, Lancaster University), as a visiting researcher/educator at, e.g. Audencia Business School; receipt of international awards: e.g. Academy of Marketing best paper award; invitation to sit on the editorial review board of Industrial Marketing Management journal and to co-edit a Special issue in the Journal of Business Ethics. My influence on my research in my field is further apparent in international conference planning - Chair of the 7th Biennial CSSI Symposium (June 2020).

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.
