Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a Lecturer in Project Management and an Associate Course Director. I teach at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and also supervise a number of PhD students. I hold a Ph.D. from the School of Civil Engineering and Geoscience, Newcastle University for a body of work which developed a risk management framework for the supply and distribution of petroleum products.

My research interests focus on the interface between engineering and the society mainly from two approaches. On one hand, I focus on the optimization of sociotechnical engineering management from the perspectives of operations and project management; safety, risk and the environment; regulations and policies; CSR and corporate accountability; and knowledge management. On the other hand, I take a critical perspective on the role of actors within sociotechnical engineering systems and organisations.

I am a recipient of the prestigious Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) scholarship for both MSc and PhD. I also contributed and won numerous research grants, notable amongst which is my contribution to the Newcastle Innovation Project, which, amongst other factors, earned a consortium of universities including Newcastle Durham, Glasgow, St Andrews and Stirling Universities the sum of £5 million as research funding from NERC.
