About me

Teaching: I attempt to create a space in which students can encounter everyday problems in organizations so that they can engage in creating change. Like others, for me, entrepreneurship concerns social change. 


We focus on societal challenges (UWE Grand Challenge and Bristol Going for Gold) and use design thinking approaches where students are introduced to tools used in organizational/entrepreneurial processes and practices. To do so, I work closely with Jayne Purcell, an experienced service designer. That, and I am a certified facilitator of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Methods and Materials.

This term collaborating with Christine Storry, Coordinator for the procurement strand of Going for Gold, we have been working with students creating artefacts to be used as part of the Bristol Going for Gold challenge. 

Research: My interest and curiosity in how a practice-based approach can be critical remains central to the above teaching and to my research practices. This interest also includes innovation and cities enabled by a BA Leverhulme Small Research Grant for Wandering about Bristol, a series of collective walk events for the project 'Thinking urban spaces differently: Articulating and contesting "green" imageries of Bristol as an enterprising city'.

Area of expertise

Creative, hands-on approaches to entrepreneurship in research and teaching.
