Prior to becoming an academic I worked in human resources consulting, investor relations consulting and information services. I obtained my PhD in management studies at the Cambridge Judge Business School and have a Magister degree in International Business Administration from the WU Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, in addition to an MPhil degree in Innovation, Strategy & Organisation from the Cambridge Judge Business School.

My research focuses on organizational and field level change in health care and the creative industries. Specifically, I have conducted research on change in health care systems management in the National Health Service (NHS), funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) and am currently leading a study on navigating dementia services in the UK, as well as a global study on vinyl record manufacturing in the digital era.

I am currently the Research Environment Lead and representative of the PhD programme for the Organisation and Work group at Warwick Business School, and a member of the Academy of Management Journal's editorial review board.
