I am a former practitioner with management experience in heavy industry, aluminium, iron and steel-making. In industry, I travelled the world as a key account manager for Latin America's metals processing sector. This included frequent and prolonged periods working in Mexico, Venezuela and Spain, owing to my second language skills (Spanish). I have also worked extensively in China, Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, Belgium and Finland.
I returned to academia in 2015 as a Lecturer and to complete a PhD at Sheffield Hallam University in Sheffield Business School. I progressed from Lecturer to Senior Lecturer in Strategic Management, Enterprise and Change in 2019, with a focus on applied research (Business Studies Project), Sustainable and Responsible Business and lead our commitments to the United Nations, Principles of Responsible Management Commitments (PRME).
I am now a Lecturer in the Business Engagement Unit at Ulster University, Business School, focusing on our degree apprenticeship programmes, and online courses.
I am Interested in working with organisations in all areas of employee commitment, responsible & ethical business and research methods. I would also welcome PhD student applications in these areas.
