Scholarly biography

15 years' working exclusively in the Centre for Research in Innovation Management on a range of projects at different levels of analysis. I have experience of micro-level analyses in firms looking for change initiatives to scenario building for telecommunications policy makers at the European Commission.

Approach to teaching

I teach on core L6 modules which are traditional in their university pedagogy; namely, 50-minute lectures and seminars around weekly themes. Curriculum is kept up-to-date though engagement with publishers and new case studies drawn from key publications including the Economist. I am currently reconfiguring my strategy modules to incorporate climate change mitigation, adaptation and decoupling. I teach two L5 modules with different, more innovative approaches.

The Design and Innovation module introduces students to key design and innovation concepts in a weekly lecture and then explores them through practical workshops where intermediaries are used such as Lego, apps and artefacts. Students build museum literacy and learn how to represent complex concepts as physical or digital objects.

The Business Problem Solutions module is a problem-based learning approach to teaching. Taught in blocks, students work in groups to offer solutions to extant problems derived from own research and testing.
