Personal profile


I am Assistant 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.

My teaching portfolio consists of modules on the BA in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship as well as on the MA in Global Entrepreneurship and I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

In terms of research activity, I am an early career researcher and lead author on 8 conference papers 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 necessity entrepreneurs in Africa
  • Women in Executive Leadership positions transcending gendered norms of leadership.
