Key Research Interests

Corporate Performance Management

My research is cross-disciplinary and centres around organisational performance management and is multi faceted. 


Industry 4.0 and Organisational Effectiveness within SMEs: 2020 onwards

I am working on a number of projects in the high performance precision engineering sector in disruptor companies as well as transitioning conventional companies into this new sphere.

Career and Creative Self-Efficacy: 2019 to date

In my role as Director of Employability for Norwich Business School, I have developed and implemented a strategy to improve employability prospects of our students. It includes several themes including embedding employability within the curriculum and promoting and developing self-efficacy within our students and alumni. This has opened up a rich vein of research with performance improvement implications and development of pedagogy. I am currently working on two projects in this area.

  • The first project is a literature review of creative and team self-efficacy
  • The second is a longitudinal study of student and alumni career self efficacy.

 Social Housing Bond Funding: 2014 to date

Since the GFC, housing associations have faced a rapidly changing environment. This project examines the increased use of capital markets to fund social housing provision and maintenance in the UK. The study seeks to investigate contemporary issues and challenges in this market as it evolves and adapts following the GFC, in addition to changes in welfare budgets and regulation. This research is being undertaken in collaboration with colleagues at Royal Hollloway, University of London, UK.

Completed a project on  lean supply chain performance within SMEs and Aerospace Prime Contractors.
