I've worked with London Fire Brigade, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, Healthcare Environment Inspectorates (HEIs) and other public and private sector organisations in the areas of risk and crisis management and decision-making.

In addition to being Course Leader for the MSc Risk, Crisis and Resilience Management, I'm also Curriculum Director for the campus version and the MSc Risk and Safety Leadership (DA) programme. I'm a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a Fellow of the Security Institute and a Fellow of the Institute of Strategic Risk Management.

I've also published international refereed journal articles considering risk management, learning from failure, crisis management and moral disengagement and currently supervise 9 doctoral research students.
