I am currently working as a Lecturer in Marketing within the Business School at Edinburgh Napier University.
I completed my PhD in Food Marketing at University College Cork. My research interests primarily focus on socio-environmental issues such as health, safety, and sustainability, in the food supply chain. I engage with a range of stakeholders including food policy makers, primary food producers, manufactures, and food consumers. I am particularly interested in and experienced using quantitative research methodologies.
I have previously worked as a Research Associate at Newcastle University and a Research Officer at Teagasc - a state agency in Ireland that provides research & advisory in agriculture, horticulture, food and rural development. I have experience in providing project management support and research skills on large multi-disciplinary projects including an EU FP7 funded project and a Newton funded project.
My teaching aligns closely with my research interests. I am module lead for the undergraduate and postgraduate consumer behaviour modules (MKT07102 & MKT11102). I am deputy programme leader for the BA Marketing suite.
