Dr Killian O'Leary

Lecturer in Marketing

Research Overview

My research is situated in the domain of Consumer Culture Theory, which looks at the intersection of consumption, markets and culture. To date I have studied diverse contexts such as online poker, Irish road bowlers, anonymous social media apps, fantasy football players, consumers with disabilities and carers. In my research I tend to apply qualitative methods such as ethnography, netnography and in depth interviews as a means to build inductive reasoning to interpret consumers marketplace actions. My work has appeared in international peer-reviewed journals including Marketing Theory, European Journal of Marketing, Consumption, Markets & Culture and the Journal of Gambling Studies.
