Personal profile


I am an Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship in the International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship at Coventry University. Within this role, I am involved in both teaching and research activity for ICTE.

In terms of my teaching portfolio, I am the Programme Director for Online and Faculty Service Teaching. I lecture at undergraduate and postgraduate level and recently attained Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.

In terms of research activity, I am an early career researcher and lead author on two ABS ranked journal articles (2 star and 3 star). I have presented my research at major academic conferences namely, Academy of Management (AOM), European Group of Organizational Studies (EGOS) and the Institute of Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ISBE). Other research outputs include one book and one book chapter in the area of gender and entrepreneurship. In addition to this, I periodically review articles for the Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development and the International Journal of Management Education.

I am a member of several learned societies including the British Academy of Management and ISBE. In addition, I am an external examiner at both undergraduate and postgraduate level for Teesside University.

Research Interests

My main research interests include entrepreneurial opportunity development, entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial sensemaking with a particular interest in process and temporality.

I am also interested in gendered discourses of entrepreneurship. I am currently working on a couple of projects:

  • Entrepreneurial Identity formation among nascent entrepreneurs 
  • Women in Executive Leadership positions transcending gendered norms of leadership.
