Edel’s reputation as a leading national and international scholar in the HRM field is evidenced by her successful forging of numerous international collaborations and national and international research projects. She has a strong track record in the pursuit of excellent research in world-leading and internationally renowned peer-reviewed journals. She has forged successful collaborations with leading international scholars and is Associate Editor of Human Resource Management Journal and is a member of the editorial board of Personnel Review. A strong element of Edel’s work is her ability to build strong networks and research initiatives. At a wider national level, her reputation as a leading scholar is evidenced by her engagement with practitioners via appointments to advise both civil and public-sector bodies in Ireland. Her approach to collaborating with and mentoring of junior researchers in both DCU and the Irish Academy of Management is an indication of how she views her role in academia.

She was an IAM council member from 2004 to 2017; IAM conference chair in 2008; the Associate Editor of Irish Journal of Management between 2010 and 2012; and the Co-Editor of Irish Journal of Management from 2013 to 2016.
