In 2008 I shifted from a successful career in the corporate world to academia in pursuit of my passion for the fields sustainability and social equity.
Today I am a lecturer and researcher at the Centre for Aviation Transport and Environment. Here I have gained expertise in a number of fields, namely: sustainable aviation, airport noise, airport, airport surface access, carbon management, circular economy and sustainable business model innovation. I am currently the lead researcher of a 4 year European Commission funded project - Aviation Noise Impact Management through novel Approaches (ANIMA).
As well as conducting research, I also have a passion for science communication and engagement with non-academic audiences. I teach on the award-winning Sustainable Production and Consumption unit at Manchester Met. I have worked with a wide range or corporate facing clients. I host a sustainability networking event called Green Drinks Manchester. I am a STEM Ambassador. I organise ad-hoc events to communicate my research outputs.
