Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Associate Professor (Reader) of Strategy at the University of Bath, School of Management, Vice President of Research Funding of the European Academy of Management (EURAM), and Research Associate at the Cambridge University’s Centre for Business Research. I also serve as Co-Chair of the EURAM 2024 Conference. Previously, I was the Director of the Bath PhD Programme and held academic posts at Oxford University’s Said Business School and the Alliance Manchester Business School. I have also been a Visiting Scholar/Professor at the universities of Cambridge, HEC Paris, McGill and St. Gallen.

I hold a first-class BSc in Economics from University College, London (UCL) and an MPhil in Economics from Churchill College, University of Cambridge. I completed my PhD in Management at Cambridge's Judge Business School, where I was an ESRC and Lloyd's of London scholar. I also attended the ITP Programme at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University (USA).

I have published research on Mergers and Acquisitions, Business Models, and IP Management in journals such as Research Policy, Journal of Management Studies, British Journal of Management, Strategic Organization, Long Range Planning, European Management Review, and Cambridge Journal of Economics. In addition, I serve on ESRC’s Peer Review College and the Editorial Boards of Long Range Planning and International Business Review. In the past, I was the Principal Investigator on a large ESRC grant.

Willing to supervise doctoral students

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students in the areas of competitive and corporate strategy with particular interests in IP Management for capturing value from innovation; and the use of M&As, strategic alliances and corporate venturing as a means of accessing knowledge and enhancing performance.
