Personal profile


I am an Assistant Professor of Innovation at the Alliance Manchester Business School. I received my PhD in Industrial Economics from the University of Nottingham. Before joining Alliance Manchester Business School, I was a faculty member at De Montfort University and the University of Nottingham. Prior to my academic career, I held managerial positions in financial and governmental organisations in Russia.

I am an applied quantitative researcher specialising in innovation management. My expertise covers two distinct areas within this field. Firstly, I leverage intellectual property (IP) data to delve into various aspects of technology management, including upper echelons, R&D internationalisation, servitization, supply chain dynamics, and voluntary standardisation. Secondly, I focus on workforce diversity, encompassing gender, race, and age, in the context of the innovation process and, more generally, knowledge-intensive sectors like higher education. My research has been published in leading academic journals, including Research Policy, the Journal of Product Innovation Management, the British Journal of Management, and the Journal of Business Research.

I am a former Chevening Scholar. My research has received awards from such esteemed organisations as the Academy of Management, the British Academy of Management, and the Product Development and Management Association. In addition, I have served as a reviewer for top academic journals, including Research Policy, the Journal of Product Innovation Management, the British Journal of Management, R&D Management, and Applied Economics.

Supervision information

As a researcher in the fields of innovation economics, technology management, and strategic management, I am open to mentoring doctoral students who are interested in these areas. If you are considering a doctoral degree and would like to discuss your research proposal and interests, please feel free to contact me via email.

During our conversation, we can discuss your research proposal and how it aligns with my current research and expertise. I am willing to offer guidance and support throughout the doctoral research process, from proposal development to data analysis and dissemination of findings.

A mentored approach to doctoral research can bring valuable insights in these fields. I am looking forward to hearing from prospective students and working together on this exciting journey.
