I am a Lecturer in Management and first joined Essex Business School in October 2011. I have taught at a number of higher education institutions, including Queen Mary (UL), Middlesex University, Royal Holloway (UL) and Warwick Business School. I have taught various related subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including Human Resource Management, Organisational Behaviour, Performance Management, Business Ethics, Leadership, Change Management, Knowledge Management, Business Strategy, Fundamentals of Management, and Research Methodology. I am currently module leader for two Master's level modules: International Employment Relations in Context and Learning and Talent Development in Context. I am a member of the CIPD.
My earlier research focused on interactions between human resource management, performance management and work-based learning from an interpretive perspective. I have also cooperated with the BBC World Service and the BBC College of Journalism, investigating the impact of organisational, institutional and cultural contexts on web-enabled journalist training and learning. I have also investigated the interactions of organisational, institutional and cultural contexts with respect to sustainable labour markets and HRM practice in Brazil. My developing research interests revolve around the notions of capabilities and inclusion through decent work, including through apprenticeship opportunities.
