Personal profile

Research Statement

My current research focuses on exploring contextual issues in supply chain networks. My background is in community and rural development, particularly around challenges of historically marginalised areas. I am primarily focused on the marginalisation of suppliers in food production and consumption networks, working with critical and post-colonial lens to surface new perspectives. Additionally, some recent work has explored issues related to transparency and to the adoption of environmental and social practices in supply chains. I am interested in engaged research approaches in these areas as well as the potential for research activism.
