I joined the Operations Management and Decision Sciences division within the Management School in 2014 as an ESRC funded Doctoral Researcher. Prior to this, I completed my MBA - also at Sheffield - and worked professionally for several years in corporate and project finance, including senior roles.

I also hold a Masters degree in International Studies and a Bachelors degree in Economics and Politics.


My research interests centre on natural capital valuation and environmental finance. My current focus is looking at the economic and social value of the freshwater resources that are consumed and degraded along global agri-food supply chains, and how the application of such values can lead to supply chain optimisation.
