About

I am a Lecturer of Operations Management and Logistics & Supply Chain Management in the College of Business, Law and Social Sciences at the University of Derby. I am also associated as a researcher with Centre for Supply Chain Improvement at the University of Derby. Alongside my academic responsibilities, I am actively engaged with transport sector industries through the project Enscite, to conduct analysis on their operations and provide consultation to help organisations achieve excellence in their operations and supply chain management. Formerly I have extensive work experience in business management and administration.

As a growing researcher, I have published in high ranking peer-reviewed scientific journals such as International Journal of Production Research (IJPR) and Production Planning and Control (PPC). I have published and presented in International Conferences such as POMS, APMS, INCOM, IEOM and have contributed chapters and case studies in books.

I also supervise research work of PhD and Masters students.
