I am Lecturer/Assistant Professor at the School of Art History and Cultural Policy at UCD. I lecture in management on the MA in Cultural Policy and Arts Management. Between 2015 and 2018 I held a temporary post of Lecturer/Assistant Professor of Management at UCD College of Business.The overarching theme of my research is emotion in organisations and in particular how emotion and unconscious dynamics influence and inform organisational behaviour and structure.
I hold a PhD in organisation studies from the University of Bath where my thesis explored the creative potential of disappointment in organisations. The thesis, entitled the organisation of disappointment, is available at this link. I also hold an MSc in systemic organisation and management from the University of Sunderland where I was awarded the Academy Prize for obtaining the highest marks in my graduating year of 2004.
I have consulted to and coached over 100 organisations and senior executives in Ireland, the UK and the US for over 17 years. Prior to that have I held senior management positions in the cultural sector in Ireland and the UK.
