Research Interests

Sinéad’s research is concerned with exploring processes of knowledge sharing and collaboration within multi-disciplinary teams and mediating between heterogeneous knowledge creation processes in a knowledge-intensive environment. This encompasses issues such as how technologies can shape (and be shaped by) organizational culture; the reconfiguration of practices around the introduction of new information technologies; and the associated social and organizational implications of such changes.
