Profile

Biography

I am the MSc HRM and Organisation Change Management Programme Director. I am a committed researcher- practitioner in HRM and experienced Senior Lecturer. I completed my Masters in HRM whilst working full time in a variety of HR roles for the Metropolitan Police Service, including Employee Engagement and Communication Manager for a large scale HR Transformational programme. My doctoral studies explored HR managerial careers through a feminist poststructuralist and intersectional lens. Other research interests and areas of publication include; the impact on careers from the changing nature of work, the gig economy, work-based conflict resolution and diversity and inclusion. I have a keen interest in HR careers and supporting the development of those working in the profession. I have been an active member of the London CIPD HR professional network for over 10 years and I am currently Co-Chair of the East London and Docklands CIPD Branch and sit on the CIPD London Committee. I am also an accredited workplace mediator and am a founding member of a Pan-London University mediation community of practice and service.
