Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined joined the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship (HCE) in July 2020 from the University of Stirling. At the HCE I teach creativity and entrepreneurial thinking on our MSc and MBA programmes. This aligns closely to my research interests and expertise on supporting business growth and scaling through value creation.

Research Interests

My area of expertise is broadly entrepreneurship, specifically business development and growth in the context of young ventures and SMEs. Much of my work to date has focused on high growth/scale-up entrepreneurship, including the nature and processes of growth in these firms, their support requirements (financial and otherwise) and the wider public policy context and support mechanisms designed for high growth firms/scale-ups (high growth entrepreneurship policy). I am also interested in wider issues related to business development and growth including creativity; entrepreneurial thinking and mindset; the role of entrepreneurial financing; the effect of changes in ownership structure and business models; business accelerator programming, as well as entrepreneurship education for different audiences.
