Research Interests

Identity, leadership, professionals, collaboration


Availability for PhD Supervision and suggested topics

Yes. I’m interested in supervising students with an interest in research into healthcare, or who are broadly interested in the identity dynamics underpinning processes in complex organisations. Ideally qualitative or mixed methods approaches are preferred. I am also supportive of students who wish to undertake an international approach to their data collection.
