I am a Research Professor at the Economic and Social Research Institute and my research focuses mainly on how firms make decisions across a range of dimensions, including exporting, foreign direct investment, employment and wages. Lots of the recent focus of this work has been on the impact of COVID-19 and Brexit on firms in both Ireland and Northern Ireland.
