I am a Lecturer in Aviation Management @DCU Business School. Also, Special Editor of the Journal Air Transport Management (JATM) for the papers from the 2014 and 2015 European Aviation Conference (#EAC2015).
I carry out research on economic regulation and aviation. I am a member of the organising and the advisory boards of the EAC. Some years ago I published 'The Irish Disease and How to Cure It', an analysis of shortcomings in Irish economic policy. I tweet at @Cataldo Rex, an easier name to remember, pronounce and spell than the Irish & Breton names my parents gave me.
Before returning to teaching the Aviation Management and Dazzling Science, I acquired lengthy experience of policy analysis and senior management, leading the Irish Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR) where I managed teams carrying out sectoral price reviews as well as those undertaking licensing & consumer protection roles.
