Research summary

My research interests lie within the construction industry, and I am the Principal Investigator of the Transforming Construction Network Plus, funded by ESRC. I am mainly interested in the principles and practice of sustainability and ethics, and have a track record in responsible and ethical sourcing, which relates to material and product supply chains. Having founded the Action Programme for Responsible and Ethical Sourcing (APRES) in 2010, much of my research has focused on the implementation of responsible sourcing, so I am familiar with manufacturing, construction, and service firms and their operating practices. I have published over 150 papers, secured over £6m of funding (from research councils and industry) and supervised more than 20 doctoral students to completion. In so doing I have attended to research spanning strategy, procurement, standards, values, and accounting for sustainability. Many of my research projects have been supported by industrial partners, including global materials companies and consultancies. My leadership in research and enterprise is extensive, having previously been a Director of an EPSRC CDT (the Centre for Innovative and Collaborative Construction Engineering), and an Associate Dean for Enterprise.
