Biography

ENTERPRISING & INTERNATIONAL

I am a Lecturer in Human Resource Management and the Programme Leader of Business Management Degree Apprenticeships at Edinburgh Napier University. I currently serve as a curatorial assistant at the European Organisation Design Forum. I also work as an academic advisor and placement consultant at Projekt 42, a not-for-profit gym and wellness centre in Edinburgh. I hold a PhD from the University of Strathclyde and an honorary fellowship at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh.

ENGAGING

I have over 10 years' academic and practitioner experience as a business school researcher and lecturer in the UK and Singapore, and previously as a change manager in a Microsoft business technology consultancy. I have experience working with a range of organisations in higher education, local government, healthcare, transport, energy, construction, information technology, financial services and hospitality. I am currently involved in a Scottish Funding Council funded commercial project that explores how SMEs in Scotland can accelerate progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by measuring sustainability impact.


INFLUENTIAL RESEARCH & KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE

My specialist interests include sustainable human resource management and the management of the employment relationship within the context of organisational change. My research and knowledge exchange work are focused on leadership, employee engagement, innovation, technology and action learning. My knowledge exchange activity centres on organisation design in Europe (European Organisation Design Forum) and North America (Organization Design Forum).
