Lecturer in International Business




I am a lecturer in international business at Sheffield Business School, Sheffield Hallam University. I hold a PhD in international business from Sheffield Hallam University and I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

My research interests are wide and varied. They are largely linked to entrepreneurship and inter-organizational strategic alliances. They also include qualitative research relating to case study methodology, research positionality, and reflexive practice in qualitative research.

At the heart of all my work is the strong belief in our collective responsibility as educators to foster an inclusive environment that enhances students’ access, experience, and overall achievement. Consequently, I am interested in exploring high-impact international business education and pedagogy that enriches teaching and learning in higher education.
