I am a Senior Lecturer in The Business School at Bournemouth University. My research interests include an interest in the application of ethnomethodology and conversation analysis to the study of managerial work.

My teaching interests include delivery on a range of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Business Programmes, in particular the BA (Hons) Business Studies degree. My specialisms are HRM, Organisational Behaviour and Management Ethics. In addition, I have been actively involved in the development of research skills amongst undergraduates within the Business School. I have been involved in research supervision at the UG,PG and PhD levels.
