My main research interests are rural enterprise and territorial innovation which my PhD focused on. However, I am also interested in governance structures (MsC dissertation), partnership agreements and public participation in these structures (BsC Dissertation).
External impact and engagement
I have been invited to become part of the Advisory board for a newly established private company who are establishing Rural Enterprise Hubs across the UK as well as engaging with many hubs and businesses across the North East of England.
