Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research focuses on the sustainable livelihoods of informal entrepreneurs, with a specific focus on artisans in the tourism industry. I am interested in how they demonstrate resilience within the vulnerable context and how they combine different resources to sustain their livelihoods. My research advocates for pro-poor approaches and the institutional support of these informal entrepreneurs.

I am also a tutor at the Department of Work, Employment and Organisation at the University of Strathclyde Business School, where I tutor on various business and management courses. My work experience ranges in business consultancy, investment management, private equity, and entrepreneurship development. I have amassed experience in promoting and developing enterprises through informed research, strategy formulation, business coaching, funding opportunities, and investor relations.
