Profile

I am a graduate of Information Technology. I hold an MBA degree in business management from Coventry University in 2014 and an MSc degree in Information systems from De Montfort University in 2019.

I come from an IT project management background as an IT project manager with over 7years of experience and I have worked on projects across software development, ERP, Cloud, and Data migration.

I founded Business Interlink in 2014 as a platform that serves as both a think-tank and ecosystem bringing together investors, entrepreneurs, experts, businesses, and institutions to work collaboratively and co-create to deploy technology to solve social problems.  

I am currently undertaking Ph.D. research study full time at Sheffield University Information School with my research focusing on Crowdsourcing and participant deskilling. The research will also take a look at blockchain and how cryptocurrency can be used as a reward for participation.


PhD project 

Title: "Crowdsourcing in a Globally Dispersed Crowd: A Catalyst for Business Innovation or Participant Deskilling?"

How participation in Crowdsourcing leads to deskilling. The research will also take a look at blockchain and how cryptocurrency can be used as a reward for participation.
