Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Reader in the Department of Marketing where I have been based since 2008. My research interests are focused on exploring the role of networking and wider market practices of small and medium sized firms. Within this field I have particular interest in hybrid organisational structures and alternative and non-mainstream markets. I have a strong portfolio of leadership and management roles within SBS. I am currently Director of Teaching and Learning and also an elected member of the University Senate. I have extensive research expertise in the Food and Drink sector where I have worked with large and small companies, both nationally and internationally, examining issues related to relative competitiveness and growth strategies. I was appointed as expert budget adviser to the Scottish Government in 2017.

I have published in leading business journals including the International Journal of Management Reviews, Technological Forecasting and Social Change and International Small Business Journal.

Teaching Interests

I have been nominated in the last eight consecutive years (2011-2018) by students as part of Strathclyde's Teaching Excellence awards across all categories (best overall, most passionate, most innovative, most supportive). In 2017, I won Best Teacher in Faculty and was shortlisted for most supportive teacher in the entire University.  

I teach at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level. Most of my teaching is centred around Marketing Research, Research Methods and Dissertation Skills and I co-ordinate and deliver classes on these at all levels. I also co-ordinate the Marketing Dissertation at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level. I helped develop the programme for our new Digital Masters in Marketing; and will be teaching on that and our new Small Business Marketing class from September 2019.
