I am interested in operations management in the humanitarian and public sectors. My on-going work includes an exploration of the implications of insecurity for operations strategy, supply chain management, and logistics in the humanitarian sector. I am also part of a large research group investigating cost-effective measures for dealing with shortages in medicine supply chains.
Given the multifaceted and intertwined nature of issues faced specifically in humanitarian operations, I am also highly interested in interdisciplinary and/ or mixed methods research. For example, I have done mixed-methods empirical work on supply network resilience as well as interdisciplinary research on operations strategy and humanitarian action. I am keen to collaborate on similar work with researchers working in other fields and/ or other methods.
PhD Supervision Interests
I am available to supervise PhD students on various topics within operations management in the humanitarian and public sector. I am also interested in Global South perspectives on contemporary supply chain issues like child labour, slavery, resilience, and sustainability. I am also interested in co-supervising interdisciplinary research incorporating Operations Management as well as mixed methods approaches.
