I am a Senior Research Fellow in Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre, based at the University of Limerick, Ireland (https://www.lero.ie). I joined Lero in 2009, to conduct research into software quality and process improvement. My wider interests are in socio-technical aspects of software engineering to include Software Engineer motivation, agile methods, distributed software development, and how technology impacts the lives of the older adult. I work closely with industry, where my research is problem driven. I am also interested in the education of the next generation of software engineers. In my empirical research I employ both qualitative and quantitative methods.
