About me & my work:

My teaching, research and consulting is in strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship with a special interest is design thinking, data science, urban planning and open innovation. I work at the Business School of the University of Technology Sydney where I am a Senior Lecturer and Director for the MBA Entrepreneurship. I am also the Founder of U.lab, a platform for innovation projects and research.

I have always been curious about how things work and how to make them better: taking things apart, asking lots of questions, fixing and building stuff. From being fascinated with function and technology, I went on to study context and behaviour to understand the role that humans have in making innovation happen. Collaborative human ingenuity is what interests me most.

I collaborate broadly and have published my work in academic journals and books. I have been granted numerous research and teaching grants as well as honours for my innovative and practice oriented approach including an Australian national recognition with the B/HERT Entrepreneurship Educator of the year award.

I provide insight into emerging trends, alternate perspectives and fresh ideas to a number of private and government organisations including the City of Sydney, Business Events Sydney, Transport for NSW, the Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade and many others.

I always enjoy meeting people and making new connections. While I spend the most time in Sydney, I enjoy regular visits to other favourite places including Berlin, Vancouver and New York.
