Senior Lecturer in Management Strategy, IB and Entrepreneurship


Personal Statement

My professional life has been dominated by an interest in science-based innovation. Having been originally educated in the natural sciences (culminating in a PhD in what would today be called nanotechnology), I spent 20 years trying to do innovation in industry and since 2009 trying to study innovation at a Business School (including completion of a second PhD in Management Research).

As you might expect from a career that has seen me cross from private business to business schools, I have a keen interest in the relationship between management practice and management research. In order to further pursue these interests I joined (from the University of Leeds) the DBA team at Liverpool as a Senior Lecturer in July 2013.

My practice of innovation has included time spent within industrial R&D, at Director-level positions in fine chemical manufacturing companies, undertaking policy development for a UK Regional Development Agency and running my own management consultancy practice.

My current research of innovation is focussed on technology transfer involving university scientific research.
