Biography

I was a Principal Lecturer at the University of Portsmouth, teaching in the areas of knowledge management and organisational learning.  In the past I have contributed to teaching of information systems and research methods, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I have supervised a number of Doctoral students, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate project students with my subject area.

My main area of interest is systems theory and practice, and I have been a director and a past president of the UK Systems Society (for which the University of Portsmouth is designated as the Southern Regional Centre). I have been involved in helping the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory to deliver a development programme for systems capability among its staff and associates. I have published many articles, book chapters and conference papers in the systems field and other related areas such as systems analysis, knowledge management and organisational learning. My particular focus is on critically-informed approaches to inquiry and contextual analysis. I am a member of the programme committee for the European Conference on research methods in Business and Management in Europe.
