Born in Dublin in 1962, I studied Economics at University College Dublin, graduating with a BA and MA in 1983 and 1984. Moving to Oxford, I did an MPhil in Economics at Nuffield College Oxford (1984-1986). I worked as a Research Officer there from 1986 to 1987.Returning to study then I finished my DPhil in 1991 (The Economics of Trade Unions: an empirical and theoretical analysis, supervisor Steve Nickell) having worked in the Institute for Economics & Statistics from 1988-89. I was a Senior Research Officer at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, London 1989-92.I took up a lectureship in UCD in 1992 and was promoted Senior Lecturer in 2002. For calendar year 2010 I was on sabbatical at the Economics Department, University of Kentucky.
