I am an Associate Dean of Salford Business School. My key responsibility there is Student Experience.
I am an academic leader and management consultant with a proven track record of delivery in the areas of learning and teaching and enterprise.As an educator, I was nominated as ‘most innovative teacher in Higher Education’ at the 2016 THEAs and was nominated in Edge Hill Student Teaching award each year between 2012-2019 and won three times.
I have worked extensively with a range of Universities at the strategic level to develop and rationale their portfolios.I was a director of the ERDF funded Productivity and Innovation Centre (www.edgehill.ac.uk/PIC).
Over the last ten years, I have been involved in both ‘pure’ research projects and commercially funded work on a consultancy basis. My interest in this type of work began when I did doctoral research exploring how front-line police officers were making use of mobile technologies.
Previously, I was employed as a researcher by the AimTech Research Group at Leeds University Business School. While at the Business School, I was involved in a range of projects around information management and the impact of innovative or disruptive technologies.
In addition to my work as a ‘pure’ researcher, I have also worked extensively as a consultant on commercial projects that cover a wide range of information and organisational management areas.
I recently worked with Advance HE on a project looking at high impact teaching in Business and Management schools. I am currently engaged in work around micro-credentials with a commercial partner.

I undertake research and consultancy into the digital economy with an emphasis on how organisations and individuals can and will adapt to disruption to existing business models and ways of working.
