I work in the Business Faculty of the Dublin Institute of Technology (http://www.dit.ie) . I teach Strategy on the Masters in Business Enterprise (http://www.dit.ie/DIT/study/graduate/courses/ft588.html), International Business Economics on the Masters in International Business (http://www.dit.ie/DIT/study/graduate/courses/mib.html) and a module (Strategy Economics) on the Marketing Degree (http://www.dit.ie/DIT/study/undergraduate/courses/dt341.html). I also supervise students' research. My research involves the use of Discourse Analysis and I was a co-founder and am an active member of DIT's Discourse Analysis Group. I completed a PhD at Brunel University (http://www.brunel.ac.uk/) where I had the good fortune to be supervised by Dr. Martyn Pitt (http://www.brunel.ac.uk/about/acad/bbs/bbsstaff/bm_staff/MartynPitt) whose publications on entrepreneurial metaphors drew me to Brunel.
I've a chapter in a recent book on qualitative research. You can check it out at this link Approaches to Qualitative Research: Theory and Its Practical Application
