Dr, Mr

Personal profile


I am currently undertaking an ESRC funded SeNSS Post-Doctoral Fellowship to build on my PhD’s work developing and publishing findings which connect emerging theories of entrepreneurial agency with the wider notion of ‘evolving places’ contributing to entrepreneurship literature often insensitive to the subtleties of context, presenting at major international conferences maximising impact, teaching UG and PG modules research-led content, and engaging local stakeholders and SMEs to actively tackle socio-spatial inequalities and hidden processes of social exclusion.

Prior to undertaking the Fellowship I secured a competitive UEA faculty level full scholarship passing my PhD (with no corrections in 2020), I won a UEA faculty level full scholarship and maintenance grant to pursue a Master of Social Science Research Methods (passing with distinction in 2015), and graduated with a BSc in Business Management (starred first class honours in 2014), ranking me at the top of the student body for my course.

My research interests are interdisciplinary and influenced by economic sociology incorporating fields such as entrepreneurship, political science and regional development. I am particularly interested in the sociological side of entrepreneurship, especially concerning its broader forces for change towards the spatial and the various stakeholders within the local context.

I am keen to network with other like-minded individuals and am open to future collaborative opportunities.
