About Me


I am a lecturer and researcher in the United Kingdom at Loughborough University London. I received my MSc in Entrepreneurship in 2010 and PhD in 2015 from Nottingham University Business School. I am from Seattle, USA, where I developed my background in youth arts education and building new organizations in the voluntary sector.

My research interests include entrepreneurship, digital technologies and cyberfeminism, and critical realist philosophy. I use an intersectional feminist perspective to understand social dynamics, and the ways that technology impacts society, especially the world of work. This blog represents my own views, not those of the university.
