About me

As an Associate Lecturer I am passionate about creating positive experiences for our students whilst cherishing a valued relationship with learning. As a Fellow of HEA in my teaching practice I follow the principles of engaged pedagogy and one-to-one interaction. 

As a Researcher, I have been privileged to work for a prestigious ESRC-funded project and lead qualitative case studies based on over 250 interviews on wellbeing and productivity at work. I have also been involved in several other ad-hoc projects on wellbeing and work-life balance at work.

Area of expertise

I am passionate about impactful research into:

  • health and wellbeing at work (individual and organisational wellness, critique of wellbeing practices),
  • affect at work, specifically anxiety and other affective sufferings induced through organisational malpractice,
  • creativity at work, creative expression, and supporting/suppressing structures at work,
  • AI in organisations, future of work as well as teaching with AI,
  • entrepreneurship studies, innovation and diversity and inclusion/ inequalities in accessing opportunities,
  • deployment of qualitative and mixed methods to examine the working lives of individuals and the intricacies of organisational life.
