I am Director of the Nathu Puri Institute for Engineering and Enterprise, and Professor of Engineering Management in the School of Engineering at London South Bank University. I joined LSBU in 2018 and previously worked at Imperial College London for 15 years. Prior to joining Imperial in 2003, I was at the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) and QinetiQ, and originally worked in the field of energetic materials. I hold a BSc (University of Birmingham) and PhD (Brunel University) both in chemistry as well as an MBA (Open University Business School).

I originally trained as a research chemist and carried out organic chemistry research in areas such as the synthesis of nitrogen heterocyclic compounds and studies of nitration reactions. Several years later I changed my disciplinary focus from the physical sciences to engineering management and have undertaken research in several related areas. This includes project management, innovation and entrepreneurship as well as sustainable engineering. More recently I have carried out research on environmental management, clean technologies, renewable energy technologies and digital transformation.

Previous research positions include Visiting Fellow at Imperial College Business School (2009-15) and Visiting Fellow in the School of Business, Economics and Informatics at Birkbeck University of London (2015-18). I served as a Board Member of the American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM) from 2014 to 2021 and I was the 2019/20 President of ASEM. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, Fellow of the American Society for Engineering Management, Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and Distinguished Faculty of the Society of Research Administrators (SRA) International. I currently serve as Visiting Professor at the Institute of Advanced Research Gandhinagar in India, Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Research Administration (JRA) and Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Engineering Management Journal (EMJ).
