I am currently a Lecturer in the Department for Public Leadership and Social Enterprise (PuLSE) and am associated with The Centre for Voluntary Sector Leadership (CVSL). Find out more about the centre here: http://www.open.ac.uk/CVSL. Prior to joining the OU I worked in the voluntary sector for several years in a variety of different roles spanning individual support, project delivery, policy development, and trusteeship.
My research focuses on the voluntary sector and in particular how the sector works in collaboration with other organisations. My PhD research investigated the role of the voluntary sector in an NHS Multispecialty Community Provider (MCP). You can find out more about this work on the CVSL webpages here.
