I supervise postgraduate dissertations, especially qualitative, interpretivist studies with a core focus on HRM.

I can also supervise mixed methods projects.


As a qualitative researcher with broad interests in the field of HRM and International HRM my doctoral research focuses specifically upon international assignees. This phenomenological study explores the lived experiences of UK academic faculty involved in international collaborations. The research analyses international assignees’ roles, their sensemaking and identity within the context of Transnational Educational programmes (TNE).

Additional research interests explore the 'future of work' with a key emphasis on workforce/skills development and Talent Management. This also includes the digitalisation of work and the impact upon people and careers.
