I am a lecturer and researcher in the Dept of Accounting, Finance and Information Systems in University College Cork, Ireland. My research interests are in the area of Business Model Innovation, Open Innovation, eBusiness and disruptive technology. My research has been published in leading international journals and conferences, including Information Systems Research (ISR), Journal of Strategic Information Systems (JSIS), European Journal of Operational Research (EJOR), Journal of Database Management (JDM), Journal of Information Technology and People (IT&P), Information Resources Management Journal (IRMJ), the European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS), and working conferences of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP).
I hold a BA in Applied Psychology, a Higher Diploma in Business and Financial Information Systems and an MSc in Management Information Systems, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning for Higher Education from UCC, and I am writing a PhD in the area of Open Innovation. The MSc research I carried out on business models for eCommerce was published as two conference papers, a book chapter and a leading journal in the field of Operations Research (EJOR). My subsequent work on business models for Open Source Software has been published in two journals, two book chapters, and a conference paper, and presented as part of expert panels at three conferences. Indeed, the paper on Open Source Software published in Information Systems Research (one of the two top-ranked outlets in the IS field) was the first paper published by academics affiliated with an Irish University in that prestigious journal, making the paper the highest ranked publication by IS researchers in UCC. My current research examines Open Business Models for Innovation, and has been published in two conferences and two journals.
Since 2004, I have worked as an Associate Investigator on two funded research projects attracting funding in excess of €400,000 from the European Union and the Irish government. The CALIBRE (Co-ordination Action for LIBRE software engineering for open development platforms for software and services) project was funded by FP6-IST and was worth €1.65m in total, with UCC receiving €200,000 for work on business models for Open Source Software. The IRCHSS-funded 03C (Open Code, Open Content and Open Commerce) business models team has just completed a three-year research project (worth €242,000) investigating peer-production, open innovation and value creation strategies. In 2011, I was Co-PI on the “Innovative Business Models for the International Energy Sector” for the International Energy Research Centre”.
I am involved in Executive Education through two programmes in the Irish Management Institute – the Diploma in Cloud Strategy and the MSc in Data Business. I have also engaged with industry through training, workshops and consultancy projects, to help clients innovate their business models.
Organisations I have worked with include; EMIT Solutions, CloudCompare, IT@Cork, Big Red Cloud, Portable Medical Technologies/OncoAssist, Aerospace Valley, Supply.ie, the Irish Management Institute, the Financial Services Innovation Centre, the International Energy Research Centre, Macroom ECentre Greenshoots Programme, and the EU-funded APSAT (Actions Publique Technologies Satellitaires et Development Durable) project.
