I am a Senior Lecturer in Management at UQ Business School, The University of Queensland. Previously, I have held appointments at University College Cork and Technological University Dublin, Ireland. My main research interest and focus is human resource management, specifically in the areas of talent management, global mobility, and future of work. My work has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals such as Human Resource Management, Human Resource Management Journal, Human Resource Management Review, The International Journal of Human Resource Management, International Business Review, and International Journal of Contemporary Hospitality Management. As part of my research, I aim to help organisations and inform government policies to tackle critical people management challenges.and provide insights on managing talent strategically.
