Biography

I am Professor of Economics at the University of Limerick, Head of the Department of Economics, and Research Associate at the Rhodes Centre for International Finance at Brown University. I co-direct the Immersive Software Engineering programme.

I lead the +CityxChange, INCASE and SMARTLAB research projects for UL and am very interested in smart cities, new regional collaborations, economic networks, and in bringing thinking around natural capital into mainstream economic thinking.

My research is archived at Orcid and citations, etc., at Google Scholar. My academic CV is here.
I am Chief Economics Writer for The Currency.news, and was for 4 years a columnist with the Sunday Business Post. I have written for the Guardian, the New York Times, and the Irish Independent. I have twice won Economic Commentator of the Year for my columns.

Research Interests

Macroeconomics, Smart Cities, Innovation.
