About

I'm working with a fantastic team at 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. We specialise in delivering business improvements in supply chains, logistics, manufacturing and a wide range of business areas.

I believe that creativity plays a central role in enabling businesses to streamline their processes, identify latent business opportunities, develop innovative business ideas, solve business problems innovatively and remain competitive. I'm passionate about creativity and innovation and I have expertise in the use of various creativity techniques particularly TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) to facilitate creative problem solving in various business areas.

My research into creativity & innovation, sustainability, process improvement techniques, and artificial intelligence applications underpin my teaching, training and my collaboration with companies.

Teaching responsibilities

I am responsible for developing industry-focused training programmes and short courses for the Centre for Supply Chain Improvement. I also lecture on:

Research interests

Advanced Research - Applications of ICT, Artificial Intelligence & Multi-Agent Systems

Membership of professional bodies

Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT)

Qualifications

Experience in industry

 have been involved in a number of collaborative projects with businesses particularly, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs).
