Research Interests

My research is broadly concerned with the design and management of operations and supply chains for resilience, innovation and sustainability.  I am increasingly concerned with multi-level studies that combine individual, dyadic and global levels of analysis.  My research has been published in a broad range of journals including British Journal of Management, Production & Operations Management, and International Journal of Operations & Production Management.

PhD Supervision

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students in the areas of supply chain risk and behavioural operations with a particular interest in innovative empirical methodologies.
