Biography

I am a Lecturer in Economics at the JE Cairnes School of Business and Economics at NUI Galway. I completed my doctoral studies in 2008, where my work focussed on the valuation of environmental public goods using econometric, spatial microsimulation and GIS techniques. I hold a primary degree in Actuarial and Financial Studies and an MA in Economics from University College Dublin (UCD), as well as an MSc in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics from the London School of Economics. I was a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley in 2008 and a Visiting Researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. I previously worked as a Junior Lecturer in Economics at the University of Limerick and at NUI Maynooth, an Assistant Lecturer in Economics at UCD, and as an Intern Economist at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in London.  I also worked as an Economic Consultant with Indecon’s Public Policy Division for five years. At present I am Vice Dean for Research in the College of Business, Public Policy and Law and Associate Head of Research in the School of Business and Economics. I am a member of NUI Galway's Research Committee, Quality and Innovation Committee and GIS Centre Committee. In 2016 I received a President's Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Research Interests

I am an applied economist with research interests in the areas of health, disability, higher education and natural resources. My research generally involves the application of econometric and spatial modelling techniques to address issues in these fields, with a specific focus on public policy issues and evidence-based policy. The common theme in my research is a focus on the causes and consequences of health, socio-economic and spatial outcomes and inequalities.  I am very research active and currently working on a number of programmes of research.
