I am a lecturer of Project Management and Course Director of BA (Hons) Business Management with Project Management programme at LSBU Business School. I am an early career academic with experience in designing and delivering Agile, Quality and Quantitative aspects of Project management modules. I am an experienced programme and project professional with a track record of delivering small scale capacity building, community development and international development projects with international aid organisations.

My research focus is on project risk management practices in volatile environments and game based learning methodologies in Higher education.
