Personal profile

Personal Statement

I have joined the Hunter Centre of Entrepreneurship in 2019, as Senior Lecturer and Director of Knowledge Exchange. Previously, I used to work for Aston Business School as Senior Lecturer and Impact Champion. In the past, I was a visiting research fellow at Said Business School, University of Oxford.

I am passionate about academic impact and engaged research which helps individuals, organisations and the wider society. My field of research is Strategy Process, within this field I specialise on foresight, uncertainty and I have special interest on strategy tools and particularly scenario planning. I am mostly a qualitative researcher using interviews, case studies and ethnographic data. 

In my quest for academic impact, I have delivered a great number of executive education programmes on strategic management, scenario planning and entrepreneurial growth, to a variety of companies. I have worked both with large MNEs and SMEs on their strategy and growth journeys.

I am co-organising the Scenario Planning and Foresight conferences (joined events between BAM and ORSUK). And I am in the editorial board of Futures & Foresight Science.

I am keen to supervise doctorate students on topics related to my research expertise.
