I joined Essex Business School, University of Essex, in November 2014. At Essex my academic home is the Management, Marketing and Organisation Subject Group on the Colchester campus. I have also worked at the School of Management / Yr Ysgol Reolaeth, Swansea University / Prifysgol Abertawe, in Wales / Cymru, the Bristol Centre for Leadership and Organizational Ethics, Bristol Business School, the University of the West of England, and the School of Business at Lappeenranta University of Technology in Finland. My educational background is long and varied. Over the years, I have studied, for varying lengths of time, at Lappeenranta University of Technology, University of Victoria (Canada), University of Saskatchewan (Canada), University of Georgia (USA) and University of Turku (Finland). In 2009-2010 I was a Visiting Scholar at Laurentian University (Canada).
Outside of academia I have worked for a Finnish location technology SME in London, UK, and for a regional development agency in Southeastern Finland on various EU-funded projects.
