I am undertaking a full time PhD in WMG, supervised by Professor Janet Godsell and Dr. Joshua Ignatius and in partnership with Costain Group. The PhD project is a prime example of applying academic leadership to industry challenges and is a cross-organisational, cross-functional and cross-learning opportunity. Before joining the project, I spent 9 years in education and industry. I did my undergraduate degree in Oxford Brookes University and postgraduate degree in Cranfield University, specialising in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. After graduation, I have worked as consultant and project manager on projects in the oil&gas, infrastructure and public services sectors.
