"I work collaboratively with leading industrial and academic institutions from around the globe and have supervised over 120 PhD and MSc students at Cranfield.
My research seeks a deep understanding of how industry brings environmental and social sustainability concerns into its design and manufacturing practices.
I work with organizations in order to develop solutions that move us towards a sustainable future.
My recent work includes sustainable factories, food systems for people with reduced access to food, sustainable city re-generation design, sustainable design and operations for mainstream car manufacturers and cars with water for exhaust that do 300mpg (equivalent).
Each sector (and each company in it) is indeed unique, but only in the particular details which hold it back from better performance. The common issues – including lack of innovation, limited collaboration, poor performance management – can benefit from structured responses. I have helped organizations create and implement such structured responses to a variety of problems."
