Personal profile

Research interests

My research draws together aspects of strategy and risk. Current and research is focused on two major areas: 1) the use and impact of strategy tools, particularly foresight tools like scenario planning; 2) the impact of natural disasters and natural hazard risk on the internationalisation of firms. 

My PhD (University of St Andrews, UK) was a longitudinal, empirical study of a large, complex organisation's application of a scenario-informed strategic planning process. My postdoctoral research (University of Cambridge, UK) concentrated on risk, where I co-developed the Cambridge Risk Framework; a methodology which uses catastrophic event scenarios to estimate the impact on interconnected systems (e.g. financial networks, shipping networks) as a means of modelling the global socio-economic consequences.

I have a wide network of international collaborators and publish in world leading journals. I am an active member of the Strategic Management Society and serve currently on the Editorial Board of Futures and Foresight Science.

Statement for HDR students

I am interested in hearing from potential research students with a sound theoretical and/or practical understanding of risk and/or strategy. Scholars with specific interest in internationalisation, decision-making, strategy tools (particularly Scenario Planning), and/or sociological aspects of the strategy would be particularly welcome.
