Previously, she held various leadership roles including Associate Dean Research (for the Faculty of Business, Law and Art); Director of the Faculty Graduate School and Founding Director of the Centre for Inclusive and Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Southampton.
She is committed to developing and mentoring doctoral students and early career colleagues further in their career path. PhD supervision and early career researcher development have always been very close to her heart and mind, which has recently led her take on the role of Vice-President Talent Development at the European Academy of Management (EURAM), building on her roles as the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium Lead Chair and Mentor over the years. In 2019, she was awarded EURAM Fellowship status for her extra-ordinary contributions to her research community and to the EURAM community.
Drawing on her experience of founding our research centre, Centre for Inclusive and Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CISEI) and her collaborative approach to research on diversity, sustainability and entrepreneurship, her ambition is to establish a transnational research centre on women in leadership and entrepreneurship, with a mission to bring about transformational change, generate sustainable solutions to women’s issues in the context of leadership and entrepreneurship and influence regional, national and international policy in this field. She is interested in recruiting doctoral students in these domains.
