Biography

I am a Lecturer in International Business and Management at Keele Business School. Prior to joining Keele Business School I received my PhD in Strategic Management from the University of Edinburgh Business School. I have been recipient of the Principal's Career Development PhD Scholarship. I am also an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), UK. Prior to entering academia, I spent a few years working in the asset management industry. 

Research and scholarship

My research explores the linkages between entrepreneurial phenomena and institutional analysis. Key research topics include the study of markets and institutions in emerging economies and how firms and entrepreneurs interact with emerging market’s institutional environment, often characterised by institutional voids and forms of forbearance. I am also interested in cultural approaches to entrepreneurship. I have presented my research at leading conferences in management and organisational studies such as, European Group for Organisational Studies (EGOS), Academy of Management (AoM), World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research (WINIR), British Academy of Management (BAM), and the Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ISBE), among others. My work is currently under review in several management and entrepreneurship journals.
