Personal profile


I received my PhD from Cardiff Business School in 2017 and joined the University of Edinburgh Business School in July 2019. Prior to this, I worked at University of St Andrews as Associate Lecturer in Management for two years.

My research interests centre on issues of identity, technology and change, particularly in the context of multinational corporations and startups. My current research projects include:

  1. Organisational identity change and evolution within technology companies 
  2. Chinese investment in the UK’s tech sector
  3. Corporate response to environmental jolts and institutional change (e.g. national security threat accusations and NGO activism )
  4. Entrepreneurial identity and identity work 
  5. Identity challenging innovation in SMEs and startups
