Ike is an Academic Tutor and Doctoral Researcher at Strathclyde Business School. He teaches a range of classes in entrepreneurship and management. Presently, he is engaged in a study exploring the experiences of people with disabilities (PWD) in self-employment during an era of welfare retrenchment and enterprise policy in the UK; using the biopsychosocial model and capabilities approach to wellbeing. This research will develop a substantive model/theory of entrepreneurship and disability useful for understanding and explaining the experience, challenges and opportunities faced by disabled entrepreneurs, and for improving the support system. It is expected to impact on policy and practice, including government and policymakers, business support agencies, disability support bodies, and health and social care workers and organisations.
