About me & my work:

I teach Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Business School of the University of Technology, Sydney.

I am also Research Stream Leader for Design Management and Innovation Practices at the Center for Management and Organisation Studies (CMOS) and a Co-Founder and Director of U.lab, a multidisciplinary innovation hub. My research focuses on issues of strategic management, collaboration, entrepreneurship and innovation with a special interest in design thinking, urban planning and open innovation.
