She is currently involved in a project titled Technology-Enabled Organizational Transparency and Openness (TOTO) funded by grants from The Lewis Charitable Foundation (California, USA).

Prior to joining the Centre for Open Research and Practice, Sheila was awarded her PhD from University College Cork and worked as a postdoctoral researcher with the Centre for Resilience and Business Continuity (BIS, CUBS) on an EU-funded project titled S-HELP (Securing – Health Emergency Learning and Planning). This research centred on the design and development of decisions support systems for emergency and disaster management. Her research interests focus on the interplay between technological affordances and user behaviour across a range of domains.
