I am a researcher and lecturer in management and human geography, with interests in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), business and society, and social and environmental entrepreneurship, with a particular focus on the developing world.
I am currently employed as a Lecturer in Strategic Management at Sheffield University Management School. Prior to this I was a lecturer in Reputation and Responsibility at Henley Business School, the University of Reading and a member of the John Madejski Centre for Reputation (JMCR). I also previously worked as a post-doctoral Research Fellow on the ESRC funded Trickle Out Africa Project based at Queen's University Management School, Queen's University Belfast. This project examined social and environmental enterprises in East and Southern Africa and their role in sustainable development and poverty alleviation.
I studied for my PhD in the Department of Geography, the University of Sheffield. My research focused on CSR, development and the mining industry in Namibia, drawing upon data collected during extended in-country fieldwork. I was awarded my PhD in 2011.
