Through Afrihero and Worldhero 3E, Patrick internationally leads interdisciplinary research linking the Schools and such Quantitative Social Science areas as Global Development Studies & Informatics, Spatial Stochastic Processes, Data-Driven Strategy, Electoral Geography and Political Economy Consulting. Patrick originated a corporate academic model (CA Model ©) for structuring theoretically deep and practice-laden research topics, which can easily be spun-off as social enterprises and born-global firms with Google-like characteristics. Consequently, Patrick has supervised more than 13 PhD and 25 MSc students in these areas, some of which are designed as fully-fitted corporate academic spin-offs. He successfully led several initiatives and research grants which attracted more than £300,000. Currently, Patrick uses the CA Model © and a research-informed 3E Business Development System ©, to lead cross-cutting strategic grants in the above domains, linked to local, state, national, regional, continental, and the 2030 United Nations Strategic Development Goals (SDGs) (more than $1bn in value, circa).
