Dr. Payne spent several years as a doctoral research fellow at the Interuniversity Centre for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS) at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Following this, she worked as a researcher at the University of Cambridge in England and co-authored with the then Leverhulme Research Professor Robert Bennett, a book and several papers on local and regional economic development in the United Kingdom. Dr Payne completed a Joint Major in Economics and Sociology for her primary degree and then completed a Masters Degree in European Social Policy Analysis (1st class honours) at Maynooth University, National University of Ireland.

She was also a major partner in the UCD-based Irish team, which led the European Commission Framework project entitled Organising for EU Enlargement and which involved international collaboration with universities in Greece, Finland, Slovenia, Hungary and Estonia.

She has also co-edited a book entitled "Irish Social and Political Attitudes", published in 2006 and which presents the research findings, based on the analysis of the large-scale survey data set: ISPAS. 

In 2001, she was co-funded by the Centre for Cross-Border Studies in Armagh and co-authored a major report in 2001, entitled Creating Living Institutions. Cross border and regional co-operation after the Good Friday Agreement.  At about this time, she also collaborated with Dutch colleagues on a project examining national wage agreements and organised a research workshop at UCD entitled Negotiating Wage Agreements: Social Partnership in Ireland and the Netherlands. 

Prior to moving to UCD, Dr Payne worked with Professor Robert Bennett at the University of Cambridge on a project examining decision making for regional economic development under Blair¿s Labour Government, which culminated in several peer-reviewed papers as  well as a book entitled ¿Local and Regional Economic Development. Negotiating Power under Labour.  Dr Payne¿s PhD research completed at the ICS, University of Groningen in the Netherlands focused on "Policy Making in the European Union: An analysis of the implications of the Reform of the Structural Funds in Ireland".
