Biography

I am lecturer in Management, Organisational Behaviour and HRM at Maynooth Business School. My research interests lie in the broad area of the comparative analysis of labour market dynamics, in particular, flexibility and security, with a focus on collective bargaining in multinational companies. I hold a PhD in Comparative Employment Relations from IRRU, University of Warwick, and held visiting fellowships at the Centre for Sociological Research, KU Leuven, and at the Employment Relations Research Centre, University of Copenhagen. My work has been published in international journals, including, Human Relations, European Journal of Industrial Relations, Human Resource Management Journal, and Industrial Relations Journal.
