Area of Expertise

Face to face/online and hybrid teaching experience:

Since the beginning of my employment in the higher education I have been involved in the design, preparation, delivery and assessment creation for a number of F2F and online modules both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I have experience in delivery of the modules through a number of platforms such as: Moodle, Webex or Blackboard.

Additonally, teaching and supervision of culturally diverse students can be challenging but also extremly interesting as well. I have a record of succesfully helping my students in achievening their potential which has been showed through their very good and excellent grades. 

My expertise and interests range from teaching strategic marketing management, strategic leadership through global marketing, cross-cultural buyers' behaviour to researching cross-border strategic management of funds in Europe.

The aim of this research is to analyse both the National Express (NE) case study and the Scottish concessionary travel scheme in depth, identifying whether government support is limited to just covering operators’ costs or that it effectively constitutes State Aid.The research offers an insight for public authorities on how government support, despite numerous reviews, is not effectively and efficiently allocating public funds. No previous studies have analysed these subjects, consequently enhancing the originality and validity of this paper for future research.
