Personal statement

I joined the Department in September 2007, promoted to Reader in 2012 and Professor in 2019. Previously I worked as a lecturer at the University of Stirling and the University of Glasgow as a research assistant. Prior to that, I was self-employed.  Since September 2020 I have been Head of Department. My research interests relate to supply chain management with a focus on inter and intra firm collaboration and innovation management, specifically open innovation processes and implementation. I am currently leading two Open Innovation projects funded by Scottish Enterprise, supporting fifteen Private and Public sector organisations with their innovation journey.  I am also developing and facilitating Open Innovation workshops with the Digital Office for Scottish Government. I frequently deliver seminars and lectures around the world in countries such as Finland, India, Spain, South Africa and Taiwan. My work is inter-disciplinary in nature and I have long-standing partnerships with colleagues across the University, in particular Professors John Liggat (Pure and Applied Chemistry) and Jillian MacBryde (DMEM).  I also collaborate with colleagues from international Universities and Institutions.  I am Co-Chair and Co-Organiser for the R&D Management Conference 2021 “Innovation in an Era of Disruption”, hosted by the University of Strathclyde in the Technology Innovation Centre.
