Welcome to my web page!
I am a Research Fellow with Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and an Associate of the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick.
My research focuses mainly on: Comparative corporate social responsibility; Sustainable innovation; Commercialization of intellectual property assets; Governance of innovation networks; and Multinational corporations in developing economies.
Prior to joining the academia, I worked as a management consultant to multinational corporations in oil and gas, financial services, telecommunication and aviation industries in Africa and Europe. I recently completed a research project on The Dynamics of Networked Innovation: barriers to knowledge transfer, which compared the US and UK institutional contexts of scientific entrepreneurship and financing of early stage science. The research project was jointly funded by the Cambridge-MIT Institute and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), United Kingdom.
I am currently studying the exploitation strategy of an EU aerospace R&D network (www.vivaceproject.com/) in conjunction with the Warwick Manufacturing Group; and variation of corporate social reporting between UK and German firms for my PhD. And also working on a number of journal outputs/book chapters from both my research project and PhD research.
