Personal profile

Research Interests

My aim is to make a real impact in moving towards a more sustainable world, with the primary research focus being on extended supply chains, reverse supply chains and the wider energy sector.

More specifically, my research interests lie in: 

  • Sustainability assessment and performance improvement in extended supply chains;

  • Reverse supply chain design and optimization;

  • Digitally enabled supply chains;

  • Biobased value chains modeling and optimisation;

  • Energy-related supply chains, such as the unconventional Oil & Gas.

 

Personal Statement

I am a lecturer B in engineering management at the University of Strathclyde, Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management. My research vision is to make a real impact and inform policy in moving towards a more sustainable society. My primary research focus is on sustainable supply chains, reverse supply chains, bio-based value chains and the wider energy sector, adopting a whole systems approach for system modeling and optimisation.
