Personal profile

Academic Biography

I am experienced lecturer, facilitator, and researcher with over 15 years experience in research, strategy development, and organisation development. I currently work in the areas of research policy, culture, and impact. 

Recent publications include a study of the experiences of LGBTQ doctoral researchers and an edited collection on Research Impact and the Early Career Researcher. 

Summary of Research Interests

My research explores the intersection between music and theatre, business studies, and higher education studies, foucssing on three specific areas:

Responsible Innovation Cultures: focused on codifying some of the practical experience and knowledge gained and learnt from working at the intersection of research impact, ethics, evaluation, the project examines the intersection of corporate social responsibility, knowledge exchange, and research excellence initiatives within Higher Education and will consider the ethics of engagement from a multi-stakeholder perspective.

Applied Theatre for Business: building on my performance and cabaret practice, this research explores what performance theory can teach us about leadership and management and how performance could offer new forms of pedagogy for teaching, leadership and delivering executive education, with an initial focus on leadership within professional services in Higher Education.

Seaside Town Theatrics: this project builds on my previous work on music as design, nostalgia as a critical tool, applied and participatory theatre, and corporate social responsibility to consider the contribution businesses and business leaders make to how a town centre is experienced by residents. It considers business contributions to the built and sonic environment, community engagements, and retail theatre, with a focus on seaside towns in the UK.

External Roles and Professional Activities

I am the co-founder and managing editor for the Journal of Research Management and Administration and am currently a reviewer for the International Journal of Doctoral Studies, co-chair of UPEN's Professional Development Working Group, and member of ARMA's EDI Advisory Group.
