I am a Senior Lecturer in International Business in Brunel Business School, where I served from 2011-20 as MSc in Management Programme Director. For three academic years, I also headed College-level staff research clusters as follows: Cross-border cooperation and conflict management (2016-17); Institutional impacts on innovation, entrepreneurship and SMEs (2017-19).
Prior to joining Brunel in Autumn 2011, I was a Principal Lecturer and Postgraduate Programme Manager at the University of Northampton Business School and Deputy Director of the University’s China and Transition Economies Research Centre. I had previously worked as a lecturer or senior lecturer at the Polytechnic of Wales followed by Cardiff Institute of Higher Education, including a one - year full-time secondment to Newport Enterprise Agency, as Business Advisor. I had previously worked in administrative roles with Midland Bank plc and South Glamorgan County Council.
I gained my PhD in International Business in 2010, prior to which I was awarded a Bachelor of Commerce (hons.) degree, followed by M.A. degrees in European Economic Studies and in European Marketing Management, followed by a Diploma from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
