I am a Principal Lecturer and the research leader and research degree coordinator at Portsmouth Business School. Previously, I was the programme director for the DBA (Professional Doctorate in Business Administration) and I teach research methods and international business, mainly at postgraduate level.  My main research interest is trust within and between organisations.  I have been a founding member of FINT (First international network of researchers on trust).

Teaching Responsibilities

Research Methods and International Business at postgraduate level.


I have published on issues of trust and control in inter-organisational relationships, in particular the role of trust in outsourcing relationships and the effect of outsourcing on the innovation capability of business organisations. A key issue in this research has been the risk of information leakage, as a consequence of poor outsourcing decisions and also of collaborative R&D ventures without proper concern for their innovation impact. Another strategic management research concern has focused on problems associated with counterfeiting as a consequence of outsourcing and international business collaboration ventures and the anti-counterfeiting strategies that firms can adopt to control these risks. 

I am also interested in Higher education management and has published on issues of trust, professional autonomy and accountability in Higher Education. I am also interested in issues of trust in entrepreneurship.
