I joined the University of Edinburgh in September 2017 after having spent over a decade at the University of Leicester. I'd previously held a Resident Scholar appointment at Copenhagen Business School throughout 2015, where I continue to hold a Visiting Scholar position, as well as an Honorary Senior Lecturer Position at St Andrews University, until January 2017. I've published work on Social Theory, Consumer Research and Business Ethics and so Google devotes this part of the internet to my work: fair play to them. I'll be spending the next few years writing about Habit, Rhetoric and their relationship. Aristotle probably said all of what I'm going to end up saying about these matters already. I very much doubt he said it in a North Dublin accent, however.  

Research Taxonomy

Research Interests

I have published across a variety of academic disciplines, principally on:

  • Social theory
  • Marketing
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Business ethics

I am currently writing about the relationship between virtue ethics and individual habituation, the role of irony and sincerity within marketing communications and the rhetorical foundations of social scientific authority.
