Prior to joining Teesside University Business School (TUBS) in 2009, he worked at Durham University, Trends Business Research, Aston University and Queen’s University Belfast. At TUBS he is Programme Leader on the Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) and Chair of the School Research Ethics Committee. He has been Track Leader on the Business Support track in 2009 and the Managing for Regeneration, Growth & Sustainability track in 2010 at the Institute for Small Business & Entrepreneurship (ISBE) conference. More recently, he co-edited a special edition of International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation with Dr Kevin Mole of Warwick Business School.

His collaborative research focuses on access to finance for small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) and social enterprise (SE) owner-managers and entrepreneurs. This research has had an emphasis upon diversity, i.e. gender and ethnic differences in access to finance. He has been, and continues to be, an active co-applicant for research funding. He was a Visiting Research Fellow at TSE Entre, Turku School of Economics, University of Turku in summer 2009, 2010 and 2012, researching corporate entrepreneurship and innovation with its Director Professor Jarna Heinonen, and more recently gender and entrepreneurship policy with Professor Anne Kovalainen.
