Currently, I work as a Research Assistant at the School of Earth and Environment with Dr Rory Padfield on a Flex crops and commodities supply chain initiative (FLEXIS) project. The research project focuses on how companies in the flex crops sector address supply chain traceability and transparency. Specifically, we investigate different digital geospatial visualisation tools that companies use to communicate their sustainability commitments and efforts to their stakeholders.

Research interests

I am a qualitative researcher who uses mixed methods approach to explore the role of business in sustainable development and green transition. I am also interested in opportunities to create positive change in communities. To achieve sustainable development goals, systemic changes are needed and while industry is an important player in this process, the role of other stakeholders (e.g., governments, NGOs and consumers) and relationships between them need to be considered. Before joining the FLEXIS project, I worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with Prof Vera Trappmann and Dr Jo Cutter at the Centre for Employment Relations, Innovation and Change, Leeds University Business School. The reserarch project Work, Labour and Climate Change focused on exploring how trade unions engage with climate change. I also worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant with Dr Gulbanu Kaptan at the Leeds University Business School on a project titled Subconscious and affective determinants of food waste behaviour. As a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant, I also supported a project Covid-19 and green behavioural change, led by Dr Milena Buchs and Dr Andrea Taylor at School of Earth and Environment.
