About Me

Having worked in the European Commission and the European Investment Fund, I spent the three years until early 2011 as economic adviser to Joan Burton TD, now Ireland’s Minister for Social Protection.

I graduated in 2012 from the MPA Program in Economic Policy Management in the School of International & Public Affairs at Columbia University, New York.

From June 2012, I worked as a consultant economist with the World Bank (first in Jakarta, then in Washington DC), with Oxford Business Group and with the Nevin Economic Research Institute.

During 2013, I published two working papers, one on investment in Ireland and another, which I co-authored, on the impact of reforms to the service sector FDI regime on the productivity of downstream manufacturers in Indonesia.

Having worked for three years as an advisor to the OECD Secretary-General, I moved to the Organisation’s Investment Division in February 2016 to work directly with the Head of Division to support the G20 investment agenda, to service the OECD’s Investment Committee and to manage substantive inputs for use and dissemination by the Secretary-General.

As an economist, I also contribute to the team’s work on Investment Policy Reviews, on developing and disseminating the OECD’s Policy Framework for Investment, as well as FDI-related policy research.

I write a monthly column on the Irish, European and Global political economy for Liberty, the newspaper of Ireland’s largest trade union.

For years, people have told me that I’m so full of hot air I should be blogging. So blame them!
