About this Speaker

I am currently Dean for the Faculty of Management, Law and Social Sciences and Professor of Digital Governance in the School of Management at University of Bradford. Before moving to University of Bradford, I held various senior management roles at Brunel Business School and was a Professor of Digital Governance at Brunel University London. My current research and teaching are multidisciplinary and centred around public sector policy implementation, process transformation through digital technologies, social innovation and the implementation, diffusion, and adoption of disruptive technologies in society. My passion for solving societal problems through research and innovation has allowed me to attract over £25 million of R&D funding over the last few years from the EU, ESRC, Qatar Foundation, British Council and UK Local Government. Given the changing landscape of UK within Europe, I am particularly passionate about research and innovation to tackle the societal challenges prioritised in our National Industry Strategy, including the use of emerging technologies to transform health and social care and using community led innovation to deal with increasing levels of scarcity and poverty. Prior to joining academia, I worked in several multinational organisations including BAT Industries and IBM.
