I am a Senior Lecturer based in the Global Development Institute (GDI). I hold a PhD in International Development from the University of Manchester and specialise in the transfer of HR practices from parent multi-national companies to host organisations in developing and transitional contexts. Prior to joining GDI, I lectured full-time in HRM at a leading business school in the UK for eight years where I directed the MSc programme in HRM. Previously, I held senior HR positions in a world leading multi-national company in the retail sector.
One of my key roles is to Chair the School’s Research Ethics Committee. This is a substantive role, which requires me to engage with a diverse range of staff, students, and programmes. I also act as Co-Director for MSc the Distance Learning programme in Human Resource Management and Development.
My main teaching responsibilities involve International Management, Learning, Training and Development, and Organisational Behaviour. For example, I convene and deliver the Learning, Training and Development module, which is one of the largest taught modules in GDI. I am a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA). I am an experienced PhD and Master’s degree dissertation supervisor and External Examiner for postgraduate taught and research programmes.
I enjoy travelling and have undertaken professional work in a range of countries including: Belgium, Cyprus, France, Hungary, Poland, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates.
