I have recently completed a position as post-doctoral research associate at the Sheffield Institute of International Development (SIID). I hold a PhD from the School of Management at Royal Holloway University of London and a Masters in Sustainable Development, with a focus on social innovation and ICTs for Development (ICT4D). As part of my PhD, I have been conducting in-depth qualitative research on technology and innovation hubs, focusing on innovation processes occurring within hubs in both the Global North and Global South. I complement this academic career with substantial industry experience, having worked for the United Nations in both the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), in addition to the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI). My research interests revolve around the impact of digital innovation, social innovation and entrepreneurship.

Besides my teaching and research responsibilities I am also going to be focusing on internationalisation and decolonisation of the curriculum.
