Research Output per year
I am a Lecturer in Business and Management and the Associate Course Director with extensive experience in Higher Education, ranging from studying at different universities across the world, conducting research with a view to enhancing student experience, as well as teaching in different fields and disciplines of Business/Management. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. My PhD research concerned the analysis of differences in attitudes of European students towards plagiarism and academic integrity. I am also an Academic Conduct Officer investigating cases of misconduct and discouraging any form of academic dishonesty in the School of Strategy and Leadership.
The aim of my PhD research was to investigate differences in attitudes of European students towards academic dishonesty and to analyse the HE systems in which they gain their educational experience. The project evaluated the effect of cultural diversity on student plagiarism.
I was also involved in a Europe-wide research project IPPHEAE (Impact of Plagiarism Policies in Higher Education across Europe) which was investigating plagiarism problem at the institutional level. The project was a comparative study of procedures and policies for detecting and preventing plagiarism, covering all European Union countries. Its purpose was to identify gaps, best practices and case studies which could help minimise plagiarism problem while maintaining consistency in the standards and quality of higher education across the European Union.
