About

I am a Senior Lecturer and the Course Director of the MSc Innovation Management & Entrepreneurship. Previously I gained an extensive Higher Education teaching experience in Universities in the UK and overseas. Prior to my academic roles, I held leadership positions at Unilever UK, Greece and Cyprus as a subsidiary's Leadership member and Innovation/Marketing Manager in different Business Units. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

I am committed to innovation and creativity in pedagogy and I enhance and embed employability and inclusivity into the curriculum. My research lies in the areas of organisational creativity, storytelling, and user insights & foresights for breakthrough innovation. I have published at leading academic journals (Technological Forecasting and Social Change, Creativity and Innovation Management, Journal of General Management among others) business periodicals (e.g. Marketing Week) and international conference proceedings (BAM, IPDMC, EMAC).

I have worked for the Research Excellence Framework (REF)2021 as a member of the Kingston Business School Internal Review Panel.  I am involved into the Organising Committee of the Kingston Business School Faculty Research Online series. I am engaged into Covid-19 related research and knowledge exchange as a member of the Kingston Business School Covid-19 Think Tank and the UK Parliament Expert UK Database.

I have worked with the Hellenic Management Association as an elected Board member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and as an invited member at the National Marketing Awards Evaluation Committee. I am a member of the British Academy of Management and I have served as Reviewer at the Creativity and Innovation Management journal and as a Challenger Reviewer at the Innovation Product & Development Management Conference.
