Personal profile

Research interests

My research explores the ways by which businesses, through their global supply chains, can contribute to social, environmental and economic sustainability, and create value for stakeholders. Under this broad theme, I conduct research on labour exploitation, labour governance, environmental governance, multi-stakeholder initiatives, oppression in organisations, and fringe stakeholder value creation. My research draws on insights from a wide range of disciplines, including management, sociology, political science, planning studies, development studies, geography, agricultural studies and law.  I have acquired funding from both industries and research councils.

Currently, I'm an editorial board member of Journal of Business Ethics, and Business & Society and I review for numerous high-impact journals across disciplines on an ad-hoc basis.
