Nominated for National Teaching Fellow in 2015, she was then asked to lead the development of international staff mobility for the university. As part of this work, she developed and now leads the Global Entrepreneurial Talent Management 3 Research & Innovation Staff Exchange Project, funded with over 1 million euros by the EU's Horizon 2020 and the Korean Research Foundation in 2016.

Alison's original academic qualifications were in marketing and she completed a Masters dissertation on the marketing of 'unmentionable' products as part of her MBA. After living and working abroad throughout her career, she completed a 3 year action research study for her DBA entitled "How can international staff exchange be implemented as part of the execution of an internationalisation strategy in higher education? The case of a strategic entrepreneur". She has published widely in the intersection between strategic entrepreneurship as an approach to strategy execution and international mobility for both staff and students. With a professional design background, she is also interested in the concept and method of the design entrepreneur.
Since leading the Global Entrepreneurial Talent Management 3 research and innovation staff exchange (RISE) project, Alison has studied the role of strategic entrepreneurs, autonomous strategic behaviour and strategic neglect in project management and delivery. She has also explored international collaboration and the entrepreneurial traits of young people.
