Biography

I am Senior Lecturer in Business and Climate Change and have worked at the Norwich Business School (NBS) since 2009. I teach on a range of courses which are generally associated with corporate responsibility and sustainability, including corporate climate change management. My research research interests include corporate responsibility and complex systems analysis. This is ultimately driven by my attempt to understand how complex systems can be understood and ultimately either controlled or simply appreciated.


Before joining the NBS, I worked as a Corporate Responsibility and Environmental Manager for a range of companies, including Kingfisher (B&Q, Screwfix), Wincanton, Exel, DHL, Network Rail and Orange. Through this work I have built up expertise in a diverse range of areas including: corporate responsibility reporting, climate change strategy, carbon foot-printing, environmental management of logistics companies, corporate responsibility measurement and management systems, environmental management of major rail crashes and large pollution incidents.


Prior to my corporate career I trained and worked as a marine scientist during which time I undertook research into sea-level change, the uptake of carbon dioxide by marine organisms and subsequent changes in pH at the University of Wales, Bangor.  

Key Research Interests

My research research interests include corporate responsibility and complex systems analysis. This is ultimately driven by my attempt to understand how the interaction between complex systems can be understood and ultimately either controlled or simply appreciated.

Teaching Interests

I teach on a range of courses (undergraduate and post-graduate) which are generally associated with corporate responsibility, ethics and sustainability, including corporate climate change management. I used to teach extensively on the MBA in strategic carbon management although this course is no longer available.

External Activities and Indicators of Esteem

No current activities are currently undertaken. I have previously been involved with the annual ‘Eco-Dragons Den’ to encourage local schools in Norwich to suggest ideas and plans for new ‘eco’ businesses.
