About

I'm working with a fantastic team within the Centre for Supply Chain Improvement at Derby Business School. Derby Business School has a long-standing record as a Centre of Excellence in the area of supply chain and logistics. As a research centre, we focus on advanced research in various areas of supply chain, logistics and manufacturing.

My research interests are in the areas of Supply Chain Sustainability, Supply Chain Resilience, Food Supply Chain, Lean and Agile manufacturing, Theory of Constraints (ToC), Systems Thinking, Systematic Innovation (TRIZ), Business Process Management, Applications of Industry 4.0 Technologies in Supply Chain such as Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, Big Data etc.
