Before joining Anglia Ruskin University, I was a senior lecturer at The University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Business School. I hold a PhD and MSc from PREST (Policy Research into Engineering Science and Technology), part of Manchester University. I have also been a Research Associate in the Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies, Newcastle University and before that at CROMTEC, at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).
I have written for journals including the British Journal of Management, Business History, Long Range Planning, Project Management Journal, Critical Perspectives on International Business, Construction Management and Economics, International Journal of Project Management, R&D Management, TASM, Ephemera and Planning Theory. I have also written on business school strategy through a series of commissioned Advanced Institute of Management (AIM) reports.
