The primary themes to my research are Innovation Management and Technology Capability Analysis. This has led to the development of projects on the acquisition and impact of new technological competences on organisations, and national systems of technology transfer (Iran and Malaysia). More generally, my interest focuses on two main aspects – the development and effectiveness of collaborative modes of technology transfer, and the impact of information systems/technology on organizational competitiveness.
My teaching has primarily been in Management Science/ Operations Research areas, providing modules at UG and TPG level on:
Operations Management, Business Improvement, Business Analytics
Systems Modelling for Management, Business Simulation and Gaming, Operations and Technology Strategy, Innovation Management and Technology Management.
