Personal profile


Before becoming a Lecturer in Management at University of Roehampton Business School, I was a member of the academic staff at London Brunel International College (LBIC) at Brunel University and a Graduate Teaching Assistant in Brunel University Business School.

Previously, I had over 20 years’ experience of teaching in Further Education and IT training. During that time, I also did some software applications and web site development. Additionally, I was founding director of a professional membership body linked to South Bank University.


Since coming to University of Roehampton in 2017, I have been Module Convener for a post-graduate module, Managing Across Borders which I devised, and Deputy Module Convener for an undergraduate module, Cross-Cultural Management. I have also taught on Business Psychology, Introduction to Management and Analysing Information and Data undergraduate modules.

Before that, I had 6 years’ teaching experience at Brunel University where I taught Organisational Behaviour, Introduction to Management, Marketing, Writing and Study Skills, and Managing Data at undergraduate level and Research Methods and Critical Thinking at pre-masters level.


I am Programme Convener for the MSc Global Programmes.
