About

I joined Kingston Business School as a senior lecturer in 1990 after working as a research assistant and fellow on projects on unions and technical change, change management and technical change, workplace health and safety, and non-union industrial relations. I became a Reader in 2005 and an Associate Professor in 2013. In 2016 I became Acting Head of the Department. I am also an academic member of the CIPD.

I was a lead researcher on a NHS SDO funded project investigating Health Managers' information behaviours, and co-director of the Kingston Employee Engagement Consortium (2010-13). I am a co-applicant on a NHS NIHR project investigating 'intentional rounding' in hospitals. 

I teach research methods at masters' and doctoral level, specialising in textual ("qualitative") analysis using a variety of traditional and newer methods.
