I am Programme Director
and Lecturer in Mediation, Conflict Intervention and Negotiation. I am graduate of University of Sheffield and
University College Dublin who worked in organisations and as a self-employed
practitioner for 18 years, in mediation, conflict intervention and negotiation
roles across a variety of sectors – Higher Education, Health, Voluntary,
Financial Services and Separating Couples.
I completed a PhD (part-time)
mapping the complex landscape of antecedents, processes and outcomes to
workplace mediation. As a pracademic, I have a commitment to working
collaboratively with both academics and practitioners in the fields of
mediation, conflict intervention and negotiation. My overall aim would be to
include those who participate in mediation, conflict intervention and
negotiation in those conversations.
I have contributed articles to the
Journal of Mediation and Applied Conflict Intervention (JMACA) As one of the founding members of the
Kennedy Institute Workplace Mediation Research Group (KIWMRG) I was part of the
research project team that delivered two related research reports in 2016. Our approach to research involves academic
researchers and practitioners conducting research together in the interests of
the community of practice.
