Profile summary

Professional biography

I am Emeritus Professor of Innovation and Development at the Open University and Co-Director of the Innogen Institute at the Open University and the University of Edinburgh. I was Director of the ESRC Innogen Centre from 2007-2014 and remain an Honorary Professor at the University of Edinburgh. I began my career with a first degree in Physics at Imperial College and a London University PhD in Materials Technology working on smart materials. I remain a Chartered Engineer. My interests in the social studies of science and technology led me to Tanzania and Mozambique, where I worked at the University of Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania and at Eduardo Mondlane University Mozambique. I have also worked at Imperial College, Aston University, the Architectural Association School of Architecture and the University of Edinburgh and was a Senior Fulbright Scholar at Stanford University and the University of California Berkeley.

Research interests

My research interests focus on interdisciplinary research in innovation and development where theoretical and empirical outcomes are likely to have policy and public implications.

  1. Innovation, learning and knowledge in the life sciences
  2. Engineering and innovation in developing countries
  3. International research policy and capacity building
  4. The policy and management of technology.

Teaching interests

I have extensive teaching and curriculum development experience and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I helped to establish the undergraduate and postgraduate global development programmes and the Open University doctoral training programme.

Impact and engagement

I have worked with a wide range of external organisations including: UNCTAD, Great London Council, the Mozambican Government, Swedish SIDA, the Scottish Government and the BBSRC.

External collaborations

I am on the Editorial Boards of Technology Analysis and Strategic Management and I.J. Technology Management and Sustainable Development. I am a peer reviewer for various other journals, a Fellow of the ESRC Peer Review Panel, and have reviewed for EPSRC, BBSRC, MRC, Scottish Carnegie in the UK. I was a Research Excellence Framework sub-panel member in 2008 and 2014 and continue for REF 2021. I have served as external assessor in Wageningen University, the LSE, the Academy of Finland, Genome Canada, and for the Global Management Award, Birla Institue of Management, India.
