Profile (biography)

Since completion of my PhD in 2008 I have been a Teaching Fellow at the University of Warwick. My PhD examined the institutional geography of corporate social responsibility (CSR) decisions and practices in multinational corporations. In particular, I focused on corporate-community health initiatives in Southern Africa subsidiaries. Prior to my doctorate, I was a research fellow (Universities of Bath and Warwick) for a three year multi-partner international study exploring health and quality of life impacts of mining and mineral development projects on rural communities in developing countries. My master’s degree is from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in International Development Management. Prior to higher education, I witnessed the direct impact of globalisation and governance issues as a Field Director for a non-governmental organisation managing a range of community, and health development projects in Central and South America and Southern Africa. My original background is in nursing and I worked across medicine and psychiatry before my forays into HE.
