    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Multidisciplinary integrative research on strategic ecological transformations needed across accountancy, investment, infrastructure, education and urban development. I am a qualified accountant with extensive teaching experience in 3 colleges and 7 universities. I have designed, delivered or contributed to 46 business-related modules.  After serving as a military medic, I read Economics at LSE and then worked as an auditor for Deloitte. Later, I taught business in Africa and the Middle East before studying an MSc in Environmental Management at Durham. I migrated to Australia and researched and lectured at the University of Queensland, where I completed a doctorate in Geographical Science (Real Estate). In Australia, I worked as a government commercial analyst, evaluating infrastructure projects and foreign investments.  In 2013, I returned to UK and lectured UG and PG programmes in real estate, economics, accountancy and finance.  I advised on research projects and taught urban development and project management in China. I have published over twenty articles, a book on urban regeneration and several book chapters. I am on editorial boards of Education Sciences and Property Management but also regularly peer review for e.g. Land Use Policy, Sustainability, Sustainable Cities & Society.  My current research projects involve health phronesis, strategic military failures (Indochina), interactive learning philosophy and urban transformation.
