I am an Assistant Professor in the Human Resource Management/Organisational Behaviour Group at Nottingham University Business School. My areas of research interest are business ethics, professional ethics, and political philosophy, with a particular focus on normative issues.

My published work appears in Business Ethics Quarterly and the Journal of Business Ethics. I am currently working on two projects on professionalism and trust, and on pragmatism. In addition to my theoretical work, I have ongoing empirical projects on responsible management education and on the governance and accountability of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

My teaching activities at Nottingham University Business School involve Undergraduate and Executive Education modules in organisational behaviour, business ethics, sustainability, and healthcare ethics. I co-convene the Philosophy & Research Design PhD module and have experience supervising PhD, MSc, and MBA theses.

At the University of Nottingham, I take an active research role in the Human Resource Management/Organisational Behaviour Group and the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility, both at the Business School. I am also a member of the Centre for Normative Political Theory at the School of Politics and International Relations.

Internationally, I am a member of the Society for Business Ethics and the Academy of Management. I am a reviewer for academic journals in my field and was recognised for my contribution as a top 5 reviewer at The Journal of Business Ethics in 2017.
