Personal details

I joined the University of Leicester in September 2017 whilst in the final stages of my PhD in the Philosophy of Corporate Social Responsibility, at the University of Nottingham International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ICCSR).

In addition to my doctoral study, I have undertaken work as a Research Associate and Teaching Assistant both in the ICCSR and the School of Engineering at the University of Nottingham, delivering research and teaching focused on corporate social responsibility and sustainability.

I have also held a Research Associate role at Loughborough University, School of Engineering, undertaking transportation research with a sustainability focus.

I hold a PhD in Philosophy and MA Development Studies with Research Training from the University of Leeds and a 1st class BA (Hons) in History, Thai and South East Asian Studies, also from the University of Leeds.

Research

My research focuses on perceptions of value in organizations and society. I am particularly interested in how this translates (or not) into responsible business practice. Previously I have explored organizational responses to corporate social responsibility ratings, climate change, and fracking. I have published in journals and edited books including Organization Studies, Research in the Sociology of Organisations, British Journal of Management and Transportation Research Part D: Transport and the Environment.

Supervision

I welcome PhD applications in areas related to her current and/or previous research
