My research interests focus on transnational healthcare practices, global care chains and healthcare reform. My research projects dealt with, among others, healthcare reforms and NITs in healthcare in Romania and Canada, and are now looking at trasnational healthcare practices among Eastern European migrants in Ireland. During 2013-2014 I will be part of the international research project “Globalization and the possibility of transnational actors” (Prof. Knut Kjeldstadli, principal investigator) which will be hosted by the Centre of Advanced Studies in Oslo, Norway. My subproject will deal with the role transnational action plays in challenging the uneven configurations of social citizenship that result from the development of global care chains throughout Europe.

 My lecturing is primarily focused on the sociology and anthropology of health. I coordinate sociology and anthropology modules for programmes at DCU in nursing, health and society, and psychology, and contribute to post-graduate research methods seminars.
