I am engaged with learning and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including supervision of student research projects/dissertations/theses largely within the field of CSR and Management. However, to accommodate the needs of students, this area has been widened to work in areas that the students are keen to understand more about.

I deliver academically challenging, vocational related content incorporating innovative teaching and assessment methods to develop a student’s competence and capability in a variety of areas. I have a broad disciplinary field whilst ensuring focus on strategic, critical and applied approaches to CSR, Ethics and Management in both the private and public sectors for organisational sustainability.

My major research area is gambling examining it in the context of social policy which is an interdisciplinary and vocational subject. Social policy is the study of social problems and combines sociology, politics and economics to study how governments and what governments attempt to do about them. Gambling is a popular activity and most gamblers do not experience negative consequences, but some experience problems. Gambling-harms can have serious negative social, personal and economic consequences, which makes understanding responsible gambling critical in order to protect gamblers. The research I conduct reviews literature relating to corporate social responsibility (CSR), regulation, risk, the consumer society and the role of business in its social context.

I am running the Swansea Business School Debating Society, I run numerous cultural events, I speak Arabic and I follow the UWTSD rugby teams and watch as many games as I can on cold, rainy and windy Wednesday afternoons.  I have Superman and Batman art everywhere in my office and I am an avid comic book collector. I have also won a number of Backgammon championships in my time.
