Overview

I am currently a Lecturer in Globalisation and Political Economy, ESRC Future Research Leader and Hallsworth Research Fellow in the Global Development Institute. An economic geographer by training (PhD, Clark University), I have been based at Manchester since September 2013.

My research explores the changing geographies of global development, with a specific focus on South-South trade and the pharmaceutical industry. Originally from Ireland, I have lived in the USA (and now the UK) and conducted research for various periods of time in India, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania,  Ghana and South Africa.

I currently have a major ESRC Future Research Leader Award to support my project on "India's pharmaceuticals, local production and public health security in sub-Saharan Africa: a comparative study". This is a 3 year award (Sept. 2016-Aug. 2019) to conduct a comparative study of Indian pharmaceuticals and locally manufactured medicines in sub-Saharan Africa (also supported by a Hallsworth Research Fellowship from the Faculty of Humanities at The University of Manchester).
