Business School


I joined the University of Aberdeen Business School in 2007 having previously held academic posts at the University of Stirling and City College Norwich. I have also worked in retail and the not-for-profit sector.

I hold an undergraduate degree in marketing from the University of Stirling, in which I also studied management and philosophy. Thereafter, I was awarded a Faculty Scholarship to study for a PhD at the University of Stirling under the supervision of Professor Douglas Brownlie and Dr Paul Hewer. My thesis attempted to better understand elderly consumer’s cultural experiences of care homes.

My current research interests are within marketing theory and consumer research.
