Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the gap between corporate responsibility rhetoric and practice. I am particularly interested in firms’ motives for adopting corporate responsibility tools and in the decoupling/ internalisation of these tools. I have conducted extensive research into corporate drivers for adopting ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 and manner in which firms implement these standards. My research focuses mostly on SMEs and I explore those issues using both qualitative and quantitative research methods.

Also, I am increasingly concerned with the implementation of responsible research and innovation in industry. In this context, I have a particular interest in the link between corporate responsibility tools and responsible research and innovation.

Willing to supervise PhD

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students in the broad areas of corporate responsibility, corporate sustainability and responsible research and innovation.
