Teaching commitments

  • Masters in Public Leadership and Innovation - Module 2: Leading Change
  • Diploma in NHS Planning - Module 4: Collaborative Planning and Integration

My research concentrates on issues of organization, performance and policy in public service settings including health, social care, and higher education.The outputs of my esearch are published widely and have had considerable impact on practice and policy.

In the UK, I have led externally-funded studies of hospitals, residential children’s care, and mental health.

Between 1999 and 2007, I worked at the University of California (Berkeley and San Francisco) where I studied processes of institutional change in social care, academic health centres, and dentistry.

I am currently collaborating on a major EU Horizon 20/20 study of European public service innovations involving co-production and public value (COGOV). 

From September 2019, I will serve as Academic Chair of the Chartered Association of Business School's Taskforce on Business Schools and the Public Good.
