Biography

I am Professor in Entrepreneurship and Management at Keele Business School. My research involves the use of both qualitative and quantitative methods to research entrepreneurship, innovation and human resource management.

Prior to Keele, I worked at Lancaster University Management School, Manchester Metropolitan University Business School and Royal Holloway, University of London. I have been Director of Lancaster China Management Centre, Director of Lancaster University Confucius Institute and Head of Department, Institute for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development (now Department of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Strategy), Lancaster University Management School.

I received my first degree in Sociology from Peking University (distinction) and both MSc and PhD from the University of Bristol. I was a middle manager in the Chinese central government before pursuing an academic career.
