Job Title:

Senior Lecturer in International Management


Strategic and International Management

Key Research Interests:

International Supply Chain Management, Sustainability, Dynamic Capabilities, Strategy

Research Interests

Broadly, my research interests focus upon understanding the dynamic capabilities global supply chains must develop collaboratively to compete. In particular, this includes studying how organizations manage their relationships and how organizations balance the need to manage these relationships efficiently while obtaining and maintaining access to limited and/or decreasing resources. This has led to a growing interest in sustainability in terms of how global organizations contribute to and work within society.
