Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests lie in higher education policy, globalisation and internationalisation of higher education, university rankings and their impact on policymaking and institutional behaviour, higher education in Europe and European Union policymaking. My research has been published in international journals such as Higher Education, Tertiary Education and Management and International Higher Education, and publicised in media outlets such as the BBC, the Guardian, University World News, the Mancunion, and Times Higher Education. I was previously co-editor of the College of Europe Policy Brief (CEPOB) series and am a peer reviewer for the journal Higher Education.

Before joining Bath, I was Senior Research Associate at the Centre for Global Higher Education, University College London Institute of Education and worked in the private sector as Rankings Project Manager for Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). I have also held academic positions at the College of Europe, Bruges and Trinity College Dublin, and am an invited Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA).

Willing to supervise doctoral students

I am interested in supervising students on the DBA in Higher Education Management in topics related to higher education policy, globalisation and internationalisation of higher education, student mobility, the entrepreneurial university and the building of a European higher education area.
