Noel Healy is Assistant Professor in Geography at Salem State University, Massachusetts. Having completed his B.A (Hons) at the National University of Ireland, Galway, Noel undertook a study period at the UC, Berkeley. He obtained his PhD from NUIG in 2009. His dissertation - Interpretation, Governance and Conflict: A Critique of Protected Area Planning in Ireland - was funded by the Environmental Protection Agency and involved a multi-layered analysis of Irish tourism development and its protected area planning and governance systems. From 2010-2011 Noel lectured in the Department of Geography at NUIG whilst also conducting consultancy work for Irish NGO's. Between 2005 and 2013 Noel secured $130,000 in research funding, published peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters and presented his research extensively across Europe, North and South America.
