I am an economic geographer primarily interested in interlinkages between global value chains and local development. I often explore issues of value creation and value capture in the Global South, and have mainly been working in Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam. I currently examine relations between ‘sustainable and responsible consumption’ and geographies of dissociation in the gems and jewellery sector.
My research interests are mainly in the following areas:
- Economic geography
- Global value chains and local development
- Value creation and value capture in the global economy
- Retail and consumption geographies
- Sustainability and geographies of dissociation
- Southeast Asia
- Clothing, food, gems & jewellery
Teaching and coordinating in 2019/20:
- BSc BLC Globalisation Studies'
- CSE Business Projects
Mainly interested in supervising in the following broad topics:
- Global value chains and global production networks
- Global value chains and local development
- Consumption and geographies of dissociation
- Global retail
- Heritage tourism
- Clothing, food and gems & jewellery sectors
