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 conducting a global study on vinyl record manufacturing in the digital era.

At WBS, as part of the Process, Practice and Institutions (PPI) Research Programme, I host informal, multi-disciplinary meetings to introduce PhD students, faculty (and anyone who is interested) to ideas from sociologists and philosophers and discuss their applications to social sciences research and management practice.
