My recent research, both collaborative and lone-scholar, has focused on the development of online journalism in Ireland, the response of Ireland’s news industry to the emergence of the World Wide Web, news-media framing of the economic crisis and of Ireland’s overseas aid budget, and innovation in the Irish digital games industry. The research has been disseminated through international conferences and peer-reviewed journals, including Journalism Studies, Media History, and the International Journal of Cultural Policy. Before joining Hope in January 2012, I was employed as a Research Scholar at the Institute for the Study of Knowledge in Society (ISKS) at the University of Limerick, Ireland. My role was to support research activities and strategies related to the humanities and social sciences across the University, and foster research links and networks within UL and with colleagues in external institutions and agencies. Between 2003 and 2008, I worked as a researcher in the Society, Information and Media (SIM) research centre in Dublin City University. My primary role was as a researcher on an FP6 project examining the uses and applications of broadband in the European Union. My PhD, which was awarded by Dublin City University, examined the emergence of and innovation within the Irish digital content industry between 1999 and 2002. In Hope, I am the dissertation coordinator for Media and Communication. I lecture on the following Elements: Global Media Industries, Broadcast Communication, Media 3: Fantasy, Reality, Subversion, and Media Industry: Insights, Developments and Landmarks.
