I am a Assistant Professor in Organisational Behaviour and Director of the Executive MBA Healthcare. My research is primarily focused on issues of organisational change in healthcare and other public service organisations. In the past I have conducted studies on new types of healthcare organisations such as Independent Sector Treatment Centres and knowledge translations organisations. An important theme of my research is the relationships between organisations - for example partnerships, supply and commissioning arrangements - and how this affects organisational management, work and employment.

I am part of the management group of the Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning (CHILL) and lead on the groups teaching development activities.
