I am a Research Fellow at IKON research centre and I have been recently awarded the ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship Grant. Previously I worked on a large research project (, which investigated how NHS uses evidence in the making of commissioning decisions.

Before joining IKON at Warwick Business School, I completed my PhD studies in the field of organisation studies at the University of Liverpool, Management School. My PhD project, which was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the University of Liverpool, focused on problematizing the notion of coordination in organisation theory through an in-depth qualitative study of a major construction project. As a part of my empirical PhD research, I examined modern methods of procurement in construction and, more specifically, procurement processes of strategic partnering contracts.
