Research Interests

My research centres on how we can reduce the eco-impact of our use of materials. I am interested in sustainable and eco-efficient manufacturing processes, particularly end-of-life aspects including recycling and re-use. The context of my work is mainly within manufacturing industry but includes some community and behavioural aspects.
