I’m a researcher, writer and activist living in Fredericton (pop. 63,000), the capital of New Brunswick province in Atlantic Canada, on the banks of the beautiful Wolastoq (Saint John River).
Links to my publications are on this website. My activist work includes being on the board of several volunteer organizations and a member of the core group of the Coalition for Responsible Energy Development in New Brunswick (CRED-NB).
I’ve been a social science researcher since 1995, working in Ireland and the European Union, and Canada. Click HERE for more information about my research career.
In 2021 I began my current position as adjunct research professor in the Environment and Society Program at the liberal arts undergraduate St. Thomas University in Fredericton.
I obtained my B.A degree from the University of Ottawa in Canada, an M.A. from Cardiff University in Wales, and Ph.D. from Dublin City University in Ireland.
My core research interest is how technologies are adopted, particularly the social, political, cultural, environmental and mediated contexts. For most of my career I studied information and communication technologies and then health technologies. My interest in the climate crisis prompted a switch to energy technologies and then to nuclear energy, my main interest these days.
I have one main research project on the go:
