I undertake research in, and facilitate lectures on Food Policy, Food Fraud & Crime, Modern Slavery in the food sector and Food Safety Culture, leading to the publication of technical and peer-reviewed papers; and conference presentations. My key area of interest is applying systems analyses tools and human factors methods across various elements of the food production and supply chains. I have also undertaken projects on food safety and hygiene, using rapid ATP testing kits.
I am interested in collaborating with researchers, and stakeholders of the food industry within and outside academia on research projects within my areas of research interest. My skills include carrying out systems analyses using Human Factors techniques across industries, using a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods leading to quality improvement. I also contribute to undergraduate curriculum development through the design of modules.

Prior to joining Harper Adams, I have worked as a Research Associate on various projects, and have worked in the Healthcare, Rail, and Food sectors at the University of Oxford and Loughborough University.
