Personal profile


I am a recognised HR professional certified by the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development at the academic membership level. I am also an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. A recognition given to me because of my attainment of the UK professional standards framework for teaching and learning support in higher education. I have taught undergraduate and postgraduate modules in business, HRM and organisational behaviour, and facilitated research methods boot camps. Prior to taking post in Coventry university, I had taught business, management and HRM at the University of Sheffield International College and the University of Huddersfield. I am currently teaching modules in HRM and organisational behaviour. I am an active researcher with interest in diversity management, organisational behaviour and psychology. I have published my research in quality peer reviewed journals and I have won two awards for best papers at different internationally recognised conferences.

Research Interests

I am currently working on a research paper that has been recommended for review and resubmission with the International Human Resource Management Journal. This paper links co-worker social support to organisational identification. I have started a research project with a team of colleagues examining the implication of austerity policy on employee morale. We are currently at a systematic review stage.
