I received my PhD and MSc from Loughborough University.

Before joining the University of Sheffield, I held academic positions at Nottingham Business School.

Research interests

My research interests currently focus on ignorance management, organisational learning and strategic decision-making. I am particularly interested in studying how our mind operates under bounded constraints, exploring the interplay between knowledge and ignorance to optimise the way in which we make decisions. My work also looks at strategies for enhancing knowledge sharing in organisations.

I am interested in supervising PhD students in the following areas:

  • Strategic knowledge management
  • Organisational and cross-organisational learning
  • Managing knowledge in project environments
  • Knowledge networks and boundaries
