Profile

I am a lecturer in organisational behaviour specialising in occupational psychology, leadership and employee and organisational development.

I have 15 years of experience as an operations manager and a management consultant, and have worked in a number of high profile public and private sector organisations across the UK.

I gained a PhD looking at upward challenge in the police force from the University of Sheffield in 2017.

Research interests

My research interests include all aspects of voice and silence, and in particular, the voicing of concerns about unethical behaviour.

As a qualitative researcher, I am keen to use innovative and unique methods designed to provide insight into the reasons why employees speak up or remain silent whilst in the workplace.

Publications

Journal articles

Conference proceedings papers

Research group

I am interested in hearing from anyone interested in studying any aspect of voice and silence in the workplace.

If you would like to work with me on a piece of research in your organisation, I would also be delighted to hear from you.

Working with organisations and public engagement

If you are interested in knowing more about the reasons why employees do or don’t speak up to their managers, or how managers might encourage voice (or discourage it), please contact me. I am happy to run workshops designed to raise awareness of these issues.
