I am a Senior Lecturer in Manufacturing Engineering and Supply Chain Management at the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering, University of Portsmouth. My research interests include reverse supply chains, sustainability, circular economy and remanufacturing. I have recently worked on product returns in retail, with a focus on the ‘buy online, return to store’ scenario, investigating how to streamline the returns processes and make them more circular.
