Associate Dean for Research and Professor of Risk and Governance at Nottingham Business School

My role is to help all my colleagues unlock their full potential.

I CAME TO NOTTINGHAM BUSINESS SCHOOL AS ASSOCIATE DEAN OF RESEARCH AFTER 30 YEARS WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM, AS DEAN AND DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH. 

So, I’ve been able to observe very closely how well the Business School has developed and grown, in the past five years in particular. 

There’s a great deal of world-class research conducted here, but we’re always looking to improve, to make sure that research excellence reaches every area. My role is to give all my colleagues the time, support and confidence they need to unlock their unique talents, realise their potential and drive us on to even greater achievement.


TELL US OF A FUTURE YOU’D LIKE TO CREATE AND WE’LL GIVE YOU THE RESOURCES TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.

TALK TO US

WE’RE WELL ON THE WAY.

We're building an ‘architecture of support’ on best-practice principles, with the structure and processes to make our success sustainable. From early career researchers to Professors, we’re empowering people with the freedom and resources to make things happen, to have a real impact on the outside world.

My first impressions have been confirmed in the short time I’ve been here.

There is a very positive atmosphere, a very good team feeling, a collective sense of pride in what we have achieved together and, of course, a growing group of extraordinarily talented people. I’m here to further develop what we’ve started, building a creative, dynamic and inclusive environment that allows everyone to be the best researcher they can be.

To deliver world-class research today, it’s absolutely critical to produce work that’s both intellectually rigorous and relevant. Work that combines academic excellence with real-world applicability and impact, influencing business and policy makers to help make a positive difference to the world and people’s welfare. I know we will succeed and go from strength to strength.
