My research publication ranges from peer-reviewed journal articles to other forms of academic and policy oriented publications in the multi-disciplinary areas of public administration, development management and international development. Over the years I have made research contributions in the thematic areas of administrative culture, public sector reform, decentralisation and local governance, NGO management, organisational behaviour and HRM, and policy and organisational aspects of microfinance institutions. In addition, four of my recent books were published by Routledge in their research series in development economics and public administration and management.

I have extensively supervised PhD students in the multi-disciplinary areas of my research expertise and shall be pleased to receive research proposals for consideration from prospective PhD candidates that fit with my research interests.
