Since joining the School for Business and Society in 2005, I have taught on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in areas of public sector and strategic management, health management and research methods. My research interests fall broadly within organisational theory and management, including organisational development, leadership, change and, more specifically, identity and roles within organisations. I was awarded my PhD in Management from the University of York in 2011, qualitative case study research which explored role and identity construction within the English National Health Service.
Before joining the University of York, I worked in both not-for-profit organisations and academia, in teaching, research and project management roles for The British Council, co-ordinating overseas development projects; The King’s Fund, which sparked my interest in health service management and Northumbria University, conducting applied research in the field of quality and service improvement.
When I am not working, I like to spend time with my family and enjoy sport and outdoor activities. I also volunteer as a Governor at a local primary school.
