My research interests span business innovation, ICT and public policy. I am particularly interested in the spatial dynamics of business, policy development and outcomes at the regional level. My research is currently examining regional innovation strategy development in peripheral areas. I have published in a range of leading journals and policy publications, and have conducted research for organisations such as the European Commission, Welsh Government, regional development agencies and universities across Europe. As a Senior Research Fellow at Cardiff Business School my research is contributing to the Welsh Government programme of support for superfast broadband.
