Driven by my “anthropological roots” my organizational research is aimed at gaining a better understanding of organizational actors, decision-making processes, and leadership. My expertise is found in organizational identity and identity work (gender, age, ethnicity); ethical leadership (religion/belief); small organizations (SME’s, ethnic entrepreneurship), and research methodology (organizational ethnography). I am also active in academic-practitioner debates in the UK and Asia on migrant entrepreneurship and ethnic identity.
I published on these topics in business and management journals such as Entrepreneurship, Theory & Practice; Journal of Business Ethics; Entrepreneurship & Regional Development; International Journal of Business Anthropology; Management Learning; Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management.
At Oxford Brookes University, I currently are Research Lead for the Department of Business and Management, Oxford Brookes Business School (since 2014).
