Areas of Expertise

I joined the UEA in June 2019 to teach subjects related to digital business.  I focus upon the improvement of business functions, business models, business processes supported by leveraging digital technologies, and understanding their combined impact.

Before joining the UEA I worked at several Universities, mostly in the UK, but also Europe.  For example, a Senior Lecturer in Business Information Systems at the University of Portsmouth (UK), a Visiting Lecturer at Obuda University (Hungary), and a Visiting Tutor at the University of Reading Informatics Research Centre, Henley Business School (UK).  I have also been involved in consultancy, training, and knowledge transfer partnerships with business.
