Personal profile


I am a Lecturer in Business Management at Roehampton Business School (RBS). With a diverse academic background in Accounting, Banking, Finance, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, I am able to develop new modules for our ever expanding business programmes and deliver stimulating lectures to students at all levels. During my doctoral studies at the University of Exeter, I gained substantial experience in the three main areas of academia – teaching, research and knowledge exchange. My career objectives in RBS are to generate internationally acclaimed research articles, develop ‘business ready’ graduates and embark on knowledge transfer partnerships with both local and international business organisations.
