I am an Associate Professor in Organisational Behaviour and Director of the Executive MBA Healthcare. My research is primarily focused on issues of public policy organisational change in healthcare and other public service organisations. I have conducted several studies on new types of healthcare organisations and services, such as Independent Sector Treatment Centres, integrated care providers 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.

My research interests are in organizations, management and employment in healthcare and across the public sec tor. In my research I examine the connections between public policy, organisational arrangements and features of everyday life at work for front line employees and managers. Theoretically, I am keen to consider changing societal level institutions and how these relate to individual and group identities, interpersonal interactions and relationships.
